I Was Going to Read This

…but its new status in Oprah’s Book Club deters me a little.  I’m such a snob.

And — isn’t he the one who had some kind of controversy surrounding her book club for The Corrections?  I think he was chosen, but made some comments about it (negative comments), and then was unchosen.  And I think there’s an essay about it I meant to read.

    Does it help that he was featured on Fresh Air?

    Don’t let Oprah deter you! I just got it the other day and I’m totally absorbed.

    I just disliked the Oprah book club because it made life as a clerk a living hell. One day everything’s fine; the next day, everyone wants a copy of Anna Karenina.

  4. Christopher: Yes, Terry Gross almost cancels out Oprah. If only she had as many listeners and O. has viewers.
    Melissa: Thanks for the pep talk!
    Stacy: I just hope to get a copy without the sticker! I wish I’d bought it when I was ogling it this weekend…
