When fascinating news abounds, it is difficult to pick and choose the right stories. After all, could anything be more intriguing than the fact that a group of influential authors have formally asked Oprah to reinstate her book club? Oprah, after all, has done more to introduce literature to the public than many publishers. It’s always nice to know that someone feels your pain as you develop an intense loathing for each and every character in Fall On Your Knees.

As of this morning, Oprah hasn’t responded, but surely she’s feeling beyond flattered. What is it like to wield such power? We cannot help but wonder if we’d use ours, should we have it, for good. Could we resist temptation? Probably not.

In other Oprah news, she’s building her brand via more publishing. Yes, the world will be subjected to additional Dr. Phil and Suze Orman titles. Getting back to the all powerful issue, what if Oprah decided to try her hand at publishing fiction? We will leave it to you to build your own fantasy there.
