Karl Rove's Book Club


Recommended Posts


He may not be Oprah Winfrey, but that doesn't mean that political strategist Karl Rove can't start his own book club.

The man known as "Bush's Brain" has his own summer book group, (278 members and counting...) which he's running along with Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris.

Rove and Morris each submitted eight potential titles to read in the online club. Members --who follow along via the web--are voting on which book they want the duo to read each week. They're already covered Daniel Walker Howe's "What Hath God Wrought: hat Hath God Wrought: The Transformation of America, 1815-1848" and are currently working on Brad Thor's "Foreign Influence." On the group's "to-read" list is Philip Corso's "The Day After Roswell."

We asked Rove if he thinks his club could potentially match Oprah's in terms of its ability to move books.

"No, it won't." Rove said, simply. Rove added that he also plans to read Alex Butterworth's "The World That Never Was," James Shapiro's "Contested Will: Who Wrote Shakespeare?" and John Waugh's "Lincoln and McClellan" over the summer.

It's The Architect's book club! So, what books should be on the members' reading lists?

Island At the Center of the World,



The Forgotten Man



I very very seldom use this term must read





I just finished reading


Seal Of Honor




I DARE anyone to read the first three chapters without coming down with a darn near terminal case of lump in the throat.



Of course it didn't affect me, being a cold hearted ultra radical right winger.
