HOW OPRAH WINFREY SUGGESTS SEVEN BOOKS FOR LEISURE READING TO GET THROUGH COVID-19! (410 hits)


For Immediate Release From AOL!



`The books that see her through': Winfrey suggests seven (7):

Winfrey is calling her choices “The Books That See Me Through," works she values for “their ability to comfort, inspire, and enlighten.”

"It’s a mix of fiction, poetry, non-fiction and spirituality, books I know and trust and revisit time and again,” she said in a statement Monday.

Her new list, announced in partnership with Apple, includes Eckhart Tolle's spiritual guide “The Power of Now” and a classic novel she picked in 1996 for her book club,
Toni Morrison's “Song of Solomon.” and James Baldwin's "The Fire Next Time."

Winfrey also chose Ta-Nehisi Coates' prize-winning book on race and police violence, “Between the World and Me”;

historian Jon Meacham's “The Soul of America: The Battle For Our Better Angels”; and an anthology edited by U.S. poet laureate Joy Harjo,

“When the Light of the World Was Subdued, Our Songs Came Through: A Norton Anthology of Native Nations Poetry.”

Winfrey will “dive deeper into each book” on Instagram, according to Monday's press announcement, but will not be airing any interviews on Apple TV Plus as she has done with other picks since she signed with Apple in 2019. Winfrey had planned a new choice every two months; her previous selection, Isabel Wilkerson's “Caste,” was announced in early August.

Winfrey spokesperson Chelsea Hettrick said the seven books announced Monday would serve as “a bridge between selections,” and that no firm timeline had been set for future choices.

“This year has brought such unprecedented change overall. We will re-evaluate in the coming weeks the selection plan and timing for the remainder of 2020,” she said.
