Here at TheBlaze, we have been covering the releaserollout, and reception of Hillary Clinton's new memoir, "Hard Choices."

But it was an interview to be released in the New York Times' June 15th Sunday Book Review on Hillary Clinton's own reading proclivities that particularly caught our eye.

In the interview, the former First Lady and Secretary of State was asked to name the one book that made her who she is today.

Her response?

"At the risk of appearing predictable, the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking. I was raised reading it, memorizing passages from it and being guided by it. I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort and encouragement."

Clinton also interestingly stated in the interview that she keeps copies of President George W. Bush's "Decision Points" and Sen. John McCain's "Faith of My Fathers" in her library.
