We are so excited to announce Oprah's all new book club selection, The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. Who else is excited to get started reading and sharing?


Lorrea - WhatChaReadin'? (whatchatreadin) | 275 comments So excited to start reading, wish I could start today, but rent has to be paid first. Already on the waiting list for my library.

Dominique (ninique) | 2 comments I've just started a book (One Hundred Years of Solitude) and I'm also reading books from the Canada Reads, but I most definitely want to read this! So excited! It sounds absolutely magnificent :)

Wishing you all a wonderful rest of the week and a a joyous time reading through this book!

Rainey I am making my way slowly (way slower than I thought) through the Canada Reads selections this year.

I have read Bone & Bread, and am halfway through Birdie. Still need to get going on The Hero's Walk, The Illegal and Minister Without Portfolio: A Novel.

I'll check it out. I thought I checked this morning and it wasn't out, but I'll check again. I did request it on NetGalley, so I'll wait to see if I get it that way or if the library has it. Thanks!


Lorrea - WhatChaReadin'? (whatchatreadin) | 275 comments Me too!! If not I'll wait until the library copy becomes available.


message 9: by Kathryn (new)

Kathryn (an80slady6886) 13.99 is just too much for my wallet! I can wait. It's not like I don't have much to read. LOL!

I'm sure the book is amazing, as it portrays a significant
reality in American history. I can't even imagine what horrific times those were for all slaves, being victimized one by one. Break my heart....

Brenda (me2peachy) | 3 comments I saw Oprah video about the book and I had to get it. I can't wait to dig in now.

My library doesn't even have it available through Overdrive. I'm waiting patiently:(
