A Tale of Two Cities By Charles Dickens

Two classics in one volume by Charles Dickens.

Oprah's latest book club selection - number 65 of her book club series, announced Monday, December 6, 2010, is A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations: Two Novels by Charles Dickens in one volume.

Both titles are also available free in the Kindle store.

According to the Amazon press release, "The Penguin edition includes illustrations of 18th century fashion and culture in Dickens' Victorian world, information about the early reception for both "A Tale of Two Cities" and "Great Expectations," a filmography of Dickens' novels, further reading about the author as well as what informed the thematic elements of these classic novels." (The Penguin edition is shown and linked above.)

Freedom: A Novel by Jonathan Franzen

Oprah Book Club's first 2010 selection.

Jonathan Franzen appeared on Oprah's show Monday, December 6, 2010, to discuss Freedom: A Novel, the 64th Oprah Book Club selection and the first selection of 2010.

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. . .

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.

      A Kindle sounds like a great way to read. My favourite book is The Magus by John Fowles.

      I've never watched Oprah's TV show, but it is nice that she includes books as part of her format.

      I'm reading Unbroken on my Kindle right now. I didn't see it on her list but it sure is good and I love reading on my Kindle.

      I read, but I've no idea if I've read any Oprah-recommended books or not! Dickens, yes, but I didn't know she recommended it until I saw this lens.

      I used to read all the Oprah books when she first started the list. In fact, the first book she introduced is still one of my all time favorites.

      Today (Dec. 6, 2010) when she announced her new selection, Oprah did say she would always love the paper books, but that the Kindle was the best thing for travel. I found that interesting.
