On Tuesday, HuffPost DC's Erin Ruberry detailed Obama's previous stops, which have included Kramerbooks in Dupont Circle and One More Page Books in Arlington, Va.

The 2011 stop at Kramerbooks included a variety of selections, ranging from "The Invention of Hugo Cabret" to "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever." During the 2012 stop at One More Page Books, Obama purchased 15 children's books that were given out as Christmas gifts to family members.

Politics & Prose has been a stop for the Obama family before. Back in May 2013, First Lady Michelle Obama was treated to a packed house for her book-signing of "American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America."
