What We Can Read Into Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s List of Favorite Books
Canadian prime minister (and Internet sensation) Justin Trudeau was asked to name his five favorite books. Like a true overachiever, he named ten.
“I am a massive reader, have been all my life,” he wrote on Quora. “I read anything, and everything, in huge quantities. These days most of what I read are scholarly policy works and briefing papers, so listing my favorite fiction is really tough.”
That said, Trudeau reads a lot of genre fiction, recommending Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One and anything by the authors Stephen King , Neal Stephenson, and Tad Williams. In a sense, it’s more of a favorite authors list than a favorite books list, but he wouldn’t be a politician if he didn’t stray from the question a little bit.
