POLL: Do You Read Oprah Book Club Books? - Do you prefer Kindle ebooks or regular paper books?
First came the paperback book, lighter than a hardbound version but still bulky and heavy to carry if you had a stack of them. Then came the Amazon Kindle ebook reader and carrying an entire library of books on a device weighing only a few ounces became a reality. Next came free Kindle reading apps that allow you to read your Kindle books, including Oprah Book Club books, on your PC, Mac, iPad, iPod, BlackBerry, or Android phone - no Kindle needed!
So, tell us. . .
Do you read Oprah books?
Kindle or regular?

Night by Elie Wiesel - The 2006 Oprah Book Club Selection
About Night by Ellie Wiesel, Oprah Winfrey said, "I gain courage from his courage."
In Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel's memoir Night, a scholarly, pious teenager is wracked with guilt at having survived the horror of the Holocaust and the genocidal campaign that consumed his family. His memories of the nightmare world of the death camps present him with an intolerable question: how can the God he once so fervently believed in have allowed these monstrous events to occur? There are no easy answers in this harrowing book, which probes life's essential riddles with the lucid anguish only great literature achieves. It marks the crucial first step in Wiesel's lifelong project to bear witness for those who died.
