By now, it should be pretty obvious that Barack Obama is a huge reader. Once or twice a year, the former President of the United States releases lists of his favourite books that inspire us to add to our own to-read pile.
His recommendations range from novels of all styles to essay collections, non-fiction tackling the biggest issues of our times to biographies and much more.
As Obama himself said in July, “there's nothing quite like sitting down with a great book in the summer.” Following the release of his latest reading list, we've rounded up our picks of his favourite reads from 2021 and years past.
