Transcript: President Obama on what books mean to him
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/16/books/transcript-president-obama-on-what-books-mean-to-him.html

I've linked to the transcript rather than the resulting article by Michiko Kakutani (who also did the interview) because I think it gives even more of a sense of how deeply reflective President Obama is about the books he discusses: the questions aren't particularly leading, so it's clear that his take on the books is coming from the way that he's turned them over in his head or categorized them, rather than being asked to think about such things for the first time by an unexpected question.
