Oprah Picks Dickens!

Oprah announced her latest book club pick – and I have to say, I love it.  Though admittedly “A Tale of Two Cities” is probably my least favorite of the Dickens I’ve read, I think “Great Expectations” is one of the best books in the whole wide world of literature.  Say what you will about Oprah, she chooses books well – Remember when she had the Faulkner box set?  I found that a bold move – “Hey, Middle America! Listen to me – Read Faulkner!”

Well played, Ms. Winfrey.  Well played, indeed.
