Back in 2021, Aaron Rodgers shared his love of reading during a weekly interview with Pat McAfee. What started as a simple suggestion turned into a weekly "I wonder what Aaron's going to recommend next?"
Rodgers would go on to recommend 28 total books (plus a bonus coloring book) over a two-year stretch. For anyone looking to gain a deeper insight into the mind of one of the NFL's most elite quarterbacks, this list alone is proof of both Rodgers' introspective view of life, along with his diverse interests.
The 28 books below are listed in order based on when they were recommended, starting with Aaron's first recommendation, The Alchemist.

Aaron's first season as a member of the New York Jets certainly didn't go as planned. For Jets fan, I feel for you. As Aaron would say, "Relax & Rehab."
