‘The Daily Stoic’ is his latest pick

The NFL’s reigning MVP isn’t likely to unseat book club queens Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon or Jenna Bush Hager anytime soon, but his Aaron Rodgers Book Club is rolling right along.

Each Tuesday during his appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show,” the Green Bay Packers quarterback ends his segment by revealing a recommended book. An avid reader, Rodgers told McAfee he started thinking about the idea after Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling asked him for a starter pack of recommended reads during training camp.

His inaugural book club pick, “The Alchemist,” got a retweet from its author. Rodgers has said he’s heard from others who have thanked him for talking about reading.

“We need more people reading and (less) people spending time sitting on their ass watching TV and other bull—-,” he said on the show.
