Oprah's Book Club 2.0 Now on Goodreads!

Posted by Patrick Brown on December 05, 2012
Big news in the world of books today! Oprah Winfrey has announced her latest selection for Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 and at the same time launched an official Goodreads group for Oprah’s Book Club 2.0! Readers can gather to discuss the book as they read, watch videos from Oprah, and more.

Join the conversation in the Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 group on Goodreads.

Oprah’s new selection is The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by debut author Ayana Mathis. “Not since Toni Morrison have I read a writer whose words have moved me this way,” Oprah says. It’s already resonating with Goodreads members as well, judging by the early reviews.

It's clear that Goodreads and Oprah share a fundamental belief in the power of stories—and we are looking forward to some absorbing discussions on Goodreads about this inspiring book and the books Oprah selects in the future. As Otis, our CEO, likes to say, the right book in the right hands can change the world!

Watch the video Oprah made for Goodreads and learn why she chose The Twelve Tribes of Hattie.



Be part of the discussion in the Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 group on Goodreads!

William V. Coleman Pullleeeeeze,
When you jump on one of Oprah's personally imprimatured and ��politically correct books, add a disclaimer so that all unsuspecting readers will understand her agenda before they spend good money on some of the tripe she endorses. Too many middling authors now bear the scarlet "O".
