    One thought on “Reflections: Life After the White House”

    1. Barbara Bush sounds like a sweet lady, but just wasn t too into reading this book I really wanted to though I think I got disinterested because half of the people they were visiting coming to visit ok I m sure like 75 percent of these people I had no clue who they were talking about Sure I could have looked them up, but then I would have spent time on reading about her visitors, than the book itself Writing is not terrible, but just didn t interest me as much as I wanted it to.

    2. It is excerpts from Barbara Bush s diary after George H Bush left office to shortly after George W Bush was elected I liked reading it because George W lived in my community prior to and during his elected office I found it interesting to see what the Bushes endured during that time I did find it a little boring at times since it was a reflection of Barbara s diary, and, well, as with any family life cannot always be excitement.

    3. I enjoyed reading about what life is like after the presidency, you think after having the stress of running the country you would want to slow down and relax but this was not the case for the Bushes This book shows the love and support that she has for her family and that she would be there for anything I also enjoyed reading about all of the work she did with her Literacy programs, I did not realize that she focused on the whole family and not just the child and helped parents get their GED s, [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this book I think I picked it up at a library book sale a couple of years ago, and finally started reading it Once I started, it was a quick and enjoyable read It covers Barabara Bush s life between George H.W Bush leaving office and George W Bush taking the office She candidly admits to being biased when it comes to her family, and how blessed she is, but she s also warm hearted, entertaining, and could be anyone s grandmother She obviously loves literacy and reading, and I lov [...]

    5. This book together with Mary Slawson s March enrichement mtg on journals inspired me to start a book diary of my own This goodread site might evolve into my new one Anyway, I was very impressed that Mrs Bush mentioned books she was reading when she reflected on her life This struct a cord with me since I do spend a lot of my time reading What I love about is that I can put books into selves I now have a quick way of seeing where I ve been mentally so now I can control better where I am going to [...]

    6. Picked this up at the Bush Presidential library this past weekend where I thoroughly enjoyed reading about her early life excerpts from her diary and letters which made me want to read I ve been a fan of hers since she told her husband s handlers she would do anything they wanted except loose weight or die her hair Who can t love a woman like that This has become my between books book.

    7. My favorite Barbara Bush quote AT the end of your life you will never regret not having passed one test, not wining one verdict, or not closing one deal You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child or a parent.This book was enjoyable I wish it could have had a little less we went here and we went there and a little I think I am happy to have read this though.

    8. On the whole, an interesting and sometimes amusing book However it gets bogged down with names of her friends, personal as well as White House acquaintances The details of trips and experiences seem repetitive and boring at times What really comes across in this book is Mrs Bush s extraordinary love of her family and the pride she takes in their achievements.

    9. Reading this books was like having lunch with a dear friend Recipes, books read, where we went on our summer vacation, and all year round Sharing grief, worry, and fun Mrs Bush is a real person, no airs, no false front And she has a marvelous sense of humor What you see read is what you get I enjoyed this book immensely.

    10. I really liked Barbara Bush s tales of the White House years, and I was pleasantly surprised that she even managed to work in some favorite family recipes into her book She brings a unique perspective to GHWB s presidency, and speaks honestly of how it feels to be the mother of a president as well Great if you re a fan of the family otherwise, not recommended.

    11. Intriging Barbara Bush is warm, down to earth, witty and a good writer The book follows the Bush s busy life after the White House years from trying to cook dinners without the aid of kitchen help for the first time in 12 years to traveling around the world to meet old friends to hosting family gatherings at the Kennebunkport compound Very interesting Very open.

    12. This was the audio book Listening to Mrs Bush s book actually made me nostalgic for the 2000 presidential election Oh how far we have fallen I digress, I now am extremely jealous of Barbara Bush She has led a truly exciting life, yet seems to be a kind woman of great faith who is truly thankful for everything she has been given in life.

    13. I enjoyed this book quite a lot President Bush and Barbara led such busy, interesting lives after leaving the White House It was inspiring As an added bonus, Barbara shares the books she was reading during these years.

    14. I love her candor and humor She makes no excuses that she loves her life, her husband, family, country and God It is so refreshing to read such a positive book and it is so interesting all she does.

    15. I like to read a woman s perspective of the political world Barbara Bush is so interesting I admire her as a person totally secure in who she is, white hair and all It s fun to read about their close, extended family And she gives LOTS of suggestions of books to read.

    16. I ve learned what a gracious, busy, and literature loving person Barbara Bush is and I identify with her warm mother heart.

    17. I loved 43 s book about 41 I think I was hoping for something similar While I greatly admire Mrs Bush this book was a bit too dry.

    18. At first I thought it was kind of cute, and this made the Bush family kind of endearing But she trivialized everything, and I was disappointed with how petty she was towards political rivals.

    19. In spite of the fact that Barbara Bush is a big time name dropper, I enjoyed this look into her family I especially liked knowing what she was reading

    20. What a wonderful book talking about the Bush family, but mostly how it is seen through Barbara Bush s eyes.I wished the book hadn t ended.

    21. This book was ok.t my favorite book by Barbara Bush I thought is was kind of boring compared to her other books that I have read.
