Dec. 9, 2010— -- What newspapers do you read? It was the question that arguably did Sarah Palin the most harm during the 2008 election.

When the Republican vice presidential candidate could not name for Katie Couric which magazines or papers she regularly read that informed her worldview, it fueled the perception among voters that she was not ready for national office.

In an interview with Barbara Walters, Palin set the record straight.

"I read anything and everything that I can get my hands on as I have since I was a little girl," Palin told Walters in an interview to air tonight on ABC as part of Walters' "10 Most Fascinating People of 2010."

So what books and newspapers currently top her reading list?

"I'm reading the best book right now -- Dean Karnazes's book about being an ultra-marathoner. I read a lot of C.S. Lewis when I want some divine inspiration...I read Newsmax and The Wall Street Journal. I read all of our local papers of course in Alaska because that's where my heart is," Palin said.

Palin has said that she was offended by Couric's question and is still irked by the media's portrayal of her.

"Because of that one episode, that one episode, that would turn an issue into what it has become over the last two years. I think that's ridiculous," Palin told Walters. "That's one of those things, where that issue…that I don't read, or that I'm not informed, it's one of those questions where I like to turn that around and ask the reporters, 'Why would it be that there is that perception that I don't read?'"

That's "something that's been pretty much ginned up by the press," Palin said.
