How To Get Involved in Oprah's Book Club

By

For over 10 years Oprah has been making book selections and pushing novels straight up the bestsellers list. If you would like to get involved in the club, here is all the information you need to start.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 10 minutes - 1 hour

Here's How:

  1. Head over to Oprah's homepage and choose "Oprah's Books" from the drop down menu.

  2. If you love Oprah's selections, browse the other options available on the page: Oprah's personal favorites, expert recommendations for kids, a complete list of past book club selections, books mentioned in O Magazine, or books mentioned on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

  3. Oprah's Book Club current pick is at the top of the page. Choose to go to the information on the current selection, or see what else is going on in the club.

  4. To get access to book club message boards or email the author of the current pick, become a member of Oprah.com.

  5. Get started with the current selection by reading an excerpt, print a bookmark, read a background of the author -- or read/print information to help you along while you are reading: reading questions, plot details or quizzes.

Tips:

  1. Oprah has chosen her 60th book club selection and shows no signs of stopping. Once you finish the current pick, head to the complete list of books and choose another.

  2. Find a book club in your area, or start your own, to share all of the details of the story, question the author's intention when writing, or debate a choice a character made.

What You Need

  • A desire to read and share your thoughts with others.
  • A copy of the current book club selection.
