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.
Reading in Montana is a small, family-run, online bookstore out of Portland, Oregon. We are a family of readers; a librarian, historian, and curious preschooler. We are in this business because we enjoy finding books for readers, readers for books, and sharing what we read with others.
