Reports suggest that selling the home was not a unanimous family decision. Patti told NBC 5, "It's not just a house that we're selling. It's our home. We've lived here since 1999. It's the only home that out children have ever known. It's kind of sad, and you know, I'm more sad for our children who definitely don't want to leave."

Blago's sentencing, which was scheduled for October 6, has been postponed indefinitely. If he ever does head to the slammer, he'll certainly have plenty of free time to read all these books.
