You knew it was coming...even if it makes you mad

OprahIn what can only be called an inevitable bit of news, AP reports that Oprah's latest book pick - the self-help book A New Earth by Eckart Tolle - has already sold 3.5 million copies, four weeks after the talk show host touted it as her latest book club selection.

AP says that this is a record shipment for publisher Penguin (and Penguin published Eat Pray Love, which wasn't exactly a slow seller in paperback). The story also says it's the fastest-selling Oprah pick Barnes & Noble has ever had and has topped the amazon.com charts since it was chosen.

I don't know how to respond to this except to utter a huge sigh. It's like hearing how well the latest reality TV shows are doing.

You think Oprah will pick the unauthorized biography coming out on her life? If not, I WILL!

Connie

OK, Lesley, your assignment is to send us juicy bits from the unauthorized Oprah bio.
