Have any favorite flicks in common with the ex-prez?
Keeping with “a favorite tradition” of his, former President Obama released a year-end list of his favorite books, movies and songs. Posted to Facebook, Obama writes:
“It gives me a moment to pause and reflect on the year through the books, movies, and music that I found most thought-provoking, inspiring, or just plain loved. It also gives me a chance to highlight talented authors, artists, and storytellers – some who are household names and others who you may not have heard of before.”
