Laura Bush on Books

NPR Special Correspondent Susan Stamberg talks with first lady Laura Bush about the joys of reading. Mrs. Bush announced yesterday the creation of a National Book Festival and the Laura Bush Foundation for America's Libraries. The first lady says she is taking on the problem of aliteracy -- people who can read, but don't. She shares stories about her own reading habits and her favorite book.
