Oprah Resurrects Book Club For The Digital Age

Oprah’s daytime talk show may be gone, but the queen of all media is bringing back one iconic staple from her longtime programming juggernaut: the Oprah Book Club.

This time around, however, Oprah is updating her club for the digital age.

As the New York Times is reporting, Oprah will introduce a digital version of her popular book club this coming week following a two-year break from the book club business.

Oprah’s first recommendation: “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed, which the Times calls a “nonfiction retelling of the author’s epic hike of the Pacific Crest Trail that was published in March by Knopf.

“I love this book,” Winfrey gushes in the July issue of O, The Oprah Magazine. “I want to shout it from the mountaintop. I want to shout it from the Web,” she says. “In fact, I love this book so much and want to talk about it so much, I knew I had to reinvent my book club.”
