President Obama's Favorite Books of 2017

shelved under Best of...

As he does every year, President Obama was kind enough to end the year with a list of his favorite books. Here's what he had to say about the list:

"During my presidency, I started a tradition of sharing my reading lists and playlists. It was a nice way to reflect on the works that resonated with me and lift up authors and artists from around the world. With some extra time on my hands this year to catch up, I wanted to share the books and music that I enjoyed most. From songs that got me moving to stories that inspired me, here's my 2017 list — I hope you enjoy it and have a happy and healthy New Year."
