Oprah Returns
Cover Art For millions of avid readers, the term "book club" inevitably calls to the mind the wildly successful Oprah Book Club of yesteryear. Beginning with The Deep End of the Ocean in 1996, Oprah Winfrey engaged passionate readers and undoubtedly created many, many new readers with her show's monthly book discussion, often including the book's author for the conversation.

Although she no longer has a television show for a platform, Winfrey recently announced the commencement of Oprah 2.0 to continue her love of discussing books. This new online book club maintains the spirit of the original while utilizing technology from a new era. Based on the number of requests in Hennepin County for her two current picks, Oprah wasn't the only one who missed the book club! Feeling nostalgic for the original? Check out our list of titles from Oprah 1.0 to get some great discussion-provoking titles for your own book club, too.
