What books did Romney claim as his favorites? The Bible is his favorite book. His favorite novel is Battlefield Earth by L. Ron Hubbard, the science-fiction writer and Scientology founder. The first we would have expected, but the second is so wacky, it breathes new life into the tired old reporter's trope: There must be something we can learn about Romney by examining this answer.The only positive thing I can say about Battlefield Earth the novel is it is better than the movie.
Oh, and it is better than Atlas Shrugged. That is about it.
