This guy is well read, to say the least. The full 86-book list, separated into categories, is over at EW http://ew.com/books/2017/01/18/barack-obama-book-recommendations/. These are just the ones I saw that immediately caught my eye.
  1. One Hundred Years of Solitude, Gabriel Garcia Marquez

  2. Seveneves, Neal Stephenson

    This author has intrigued me for the longest time. Anyone care to shed some light on him for me?
  3. H is for Hawk, Helen MacDonald

  4. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

  5. Between The World And Me, Ta-nehisi Coates

    Is it wrong that I would have been disappointed if this one wasn't on the list?
  6. The Underground Railroad, Colson Whitehead
