Any readers have a prediction for Oprah’s next book club pick? The Queen of Talk will make her 65th selection on Monday, December 6—after she chats with Jonathan Franzen about Freedom.
Here’s what we know so far (via the AP). The book will be published as a trade paperback on Monday and retail for $20. (The Kindle edition’s only going for $7.99.) This morning’s edition of Publishers Marketplace also noted that it will be “a fat paperback from Penguin, categorized as a novel (of course), with an unknown page count but a listed shipping weight of 1.9 pounds.” (That is big. The Wolf Hall paperback has a shipping weight of 1.1 pounds.)
It’s been a while since Oprah picked a classic . . .
