The holiday season is upon us which means it is time to shop! Like, right now! At Amazon! (Wait....) And we've got just the thing for political junkies who want to make good on that New Year's Resolution to read more.
Books, books, books! Below is our list of some of the best books of 2014 based on suggestions from readers, tweeters and WaPo staffers.
You will probably notice what's not on the list--we didn't include any of those standard-issue books by political figures. Because, well, most of those books are, um, not so good.
So here's our list, in totally random order:
Landslide: LBJ and Ronald Reagan at the Dawn of a New America by Jonathan Darman
Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality by David Cay Johnston
Breaking In: The Rise of Sonia Sotomayor and the Politics of Justice by Joan Biskupic
