Obama’s favorite books and series
Just a few days ago, Obama shared his list of favorite books and, like last year, included “Desierto Sonoro” by Mexican author Valeria Luselli.
For this year, he collected “Undocumented Americans” by Ecuadorian Karla Cornejo Villavicencio:
“I’ll start by sharing my favorite books this year, deliberately omitting what I think is a pretty good book, ‘A Promised Land,’ from a certain president,” he joked about his own book.
Obama explained that, by the nature of the year, he was forced to stay home, which led him to consume more movies and series in streaming.
“With the blurring of the line between theater and television, we’ve expanded the list to include the visual stories I’ve enjoyed this year, regardless of format,” he said.
