So we’ve gotten the exciting news that Sarah Palin reads VQR. Don’t believe it? We get it directly from Palin’s lips in her interview with Katie Couric:
COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed and to understand the world?
PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media —
COURIC: But what ones specifically? I’m curious.
PALIN: Um, all of them…
So there you have it. Another devoted reader. Sure, she also reads Kenyon Review, New England Review, and Southern Review (not to mention my favorite new journal Open Face Sandwich and the awesome reboot of Witness). I’m hoping to catch Palin on the campaign trail now—because she reads a lot and would no doubt be able to suggest more magazines I should be reading.
