Oprah's Book Club

What other public personality is such a driving force in America's reading habits today?  I don't know that anyone has move influence than Oprah and her Book Club.  One of the most self-affecting titles that has made her list in the past (February 1999) is The Reader by Bernhard Schlink.  This book was translated from the German Der Vorleser in 1997  by Carol Brown Janeway.  I belive I read it in early 1998. Today it has been made into an academy award winning movie that is coming to DVD this month. It blurs the lines between what is evil and good, who is the enemy and who is a friend.  Nothing is ever black and white like the superhero comics.

What else has Oprah given her stamp of approval to?  The reading is varied and all worth one's time.  Check out what Reading in Montana has to offer here:
