I know Oprah gets a lot of flack and the more cynical will presume she does what she does because its a profitable way to build a self-help empire, but God bless 'er for supporting book reading so much. :) I don't care if her taste isn't always so great, she at least picks books that are more introspective and challenging than say, The Da Vinci Code.
Then again, didn't she pick a Nicholas Sparks book once?
Still, can't fault her for Faulkner.
Did she ever pick a Virginia Woolf book, I would think that would perfect for her demographic? To the Lighthouse is one of my favorite things to read ever. I keep wishing everyone could think out their thoughts as well as the characters in that book.
