Aaron Rodgers Book Club – Complete List of Books
During his first appearance of the season on the Pat McAfee Show back in 2021, Rodgers chose to talk about a subject that that he cares greatly about, reading! Marquez Valdez Scantling asked Rodgers for advice on some book suggestions to read during training camp. Rodgers went to Barnes and Noble and picked up some books for him. This inspired Rodgers to share with the world some of his favorite books. Pat loved the idea, and thus, the Aaron Rodgers Book Club was born! The book club is back in 2022 for yet another season of book recommendations.
We’ve collected the complete list along with interview sections from the Pat McAfee Show where Rodgers reveals and talks about each week’s book.
We’ll keep adding book selection as long as Aaron Rodgers keeps providing them each week. I’ve provided links to Amazon, but I feel I’d be remiss if I didn’t suggest supporting your local public library and/or local booksellers whenever possible.
This Week ( February 14th, 2023) – No New Book
Last Book (December 27, 2022) – The Wisdom of Insecurity: A Message for an Age of Anxiety by Alan Watts
