Former President Barack Obama is continuing a "favorite tradition" of his — sharing his most-loved songs, books, and films from the past year. As always, he shared the list on Facebook and Instagram. "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," Obama wrote.
