Books chosen by Oprah Winfrey for viewers of her daytime talk show.
Pages: 1 2
This list was updated to include Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations Dec 2010
Someone needs to update the list and add The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. I would but I can’t figure out how to do it. Thanks!
Not all I liked.Beloved? Horrible
Books I loved:We Were The Mulvaneys.Pillars of The Earth but she picked that years after it was published and it was already a bestseller. I hope more people read that book thanks to her. Great book.
I started with A Pilot’s Wife which I enjoyed.Enjoyed most of the books but yes most are depressing.I did not like James Frey’s fake book.
Today i received 2 books of the list. Night and Icy Sparks. So far I’ve only read 23 of this list. Going to make it 25 :)
Decided to add it to my lists because just a few years ago I read a lot of The Oprah books.It says I am 32% done with this list.One book I really want to read is Night by Ellie Wiesel.Maybe I am going to try some of the others.
I added the two most recent books; I hope this is OK!
There’s so much to be said about the books Oprah chooses, but it’s interesting to read at least a few of them, if only to be able to discuss the cultural phenomena of “pop” literature.
I’ll try and pick out some of these books to give a read to. Maybe I’m missing out..
