What's Karl Rove reading?

This week it’s Brad Thor’s thriller “Foreign Influence” – and he’s inviting you to read along with him.

Last week, Rove launched an online book club with Fox News anchor Clayton Morris. Karl and Clayton’s Summer Book Club will read one book a week through the summer. Its first book was “What Hath God Wrought: The Transformation of America, 1815-1848” by Daniel Walker Howe.

For week two, members were asked to cast a vote for Thor’s novel (Rove’s choice) or Audrey Niffenegger’s “The Time Traveler’s Wife” (Morris’s choice). Thor won with 73 percent of the vote. “I can't see Karl reading ‘The Time Traveler's Wife,’” wrote one member.

The club has 358 members, but so far the number of discussions have been light. And although Rove has talked about the club on his Twitter account, he has yet to comment in the book club’s forum.

What do you think his next book should be?

How about a clear analysis of the Federalist Papers.

If Rove hasn't already read them, the rest of the volumes in the Oxford History of the United States (of which Howe's book is one) would be ideal

Karl might recognize some of the passages in Mein Kampf.

I can only hope one day he'll read "How To Adjust To A Federal Pentitentiary".
