Barack Obama lists his favorite books of 2020

In a year that saw many traditions upended, former President Barack Obama is keeping up with one annual custom: sharing his favorite books of the year.

The former President, in a Twitter post Thursday, highlighted 17 titlesincluding Isabel Wilkerson’sCaste,” Brit Bennett’sThe Vanishing Halfand C Pam Zhang’sHow Much of These Hills is Gold.
But noticeably absent from the list was his own memoirA Promised Landwhich was released last month.
I’ll start by sharing my favorite books this year, deliberately omitting what I think is a pretty good bookA Promised Landby a certain 44th president,” Obama joked. “I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I did.
