Sarah Palin isn't really known for her sophisticated taste in fiction, but she is known for her hypothetical taste in news. Take, for example, that famous 2008 Katie Couric interview where the former, half-term governor of Alaska answered a "vast, variety of sources" after Couric asked her to list the publications where she received her world news. Now, the Huffington Post suggests that perhaps one of Palin's "vast, variety of sources" is the highly regarded journalistic gem, the National Enquirer.

According to the Huffington Post, the GOP darling was recently spotted shopping at a Kmart in Studio City, Calif. At one point, Palin, who was accompanied by daughter Bristol, stopped to pick up a copy of the National Enquirer and then the magic happened ... she started reading it.

Of course, the paparazzi jumped all over the opportunity to snap Sarah in action. And as a result we now have several -- and some may argue unglamorous, photos of Mama Grizzly doing the once unthinkable.

So what was it that caught Palin's eye? It appears this month's Enquirer cover story, "Plastic Surgery Shockers," just so happens to feature Bristol.

To see the photos, check out the Huffington Post here, and for more on Bristol Palin's "transformation," read here.
