Here is Barack Obama’s List of Favorite Books in 2020

The former President, in a Twitter post Thursday, highlighted 17 titles — including Isabel Wilkerson’s “Caste,” Brit Bennett’s “The Vanishing Half” and C Pam Zhang’s “How Much of These Hills is Gold.”
But noticeably absent from the list was his own memoir — A Promised Land — which was released last month.
“I’ll start by sharing my favorite books this year, deliberately omitting what I think is a pretty good book — A Promised Land — by a certain 44th president,” Obama joked. “I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I did.”
