Barack Obama’s 2023 summer reading list is out! Just today, the former president tweeted what he’ll be reading this summer and asked followers for even more recommendations. Each year, the books he lists as part of his summer reading are always a good mix of fiction and nonfiction, with differing genres — though he might enjoy reading a little more romance, if we’re keeping it real. This year’s selections showcase his usual eclectic interests — there’s a sociologist’s nonfiction account of why poor people stay poor in the U.S., a biography of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a contemporary tale of Ghanian siblings, gritty Southern noir, and more.
