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.
