Oprah’s Book Club Pick

I’m so happy to see Oprah is getting back to picking a good fiction story.  I read and reviewed this one a couple months ago.   You can read my review here.  I’m not surprised this her pick because it is an emotional tale about dogs.  Write a story about a special dog, Oprah’s special dog sadly passes away around the book’s release date and the stars have aligned for David Wroblewski!  It is well worth the read and it’s a great choice!

  7. Lordy Lordy…what would you girls do if you didn’t have Oprah to tell you what to read

  8. Actually I heard about this book on NPR a couple of months ago. I was wait- listed for just about that long at our library. When I finally got to go pick it up, I was kind of disappointed that it was an O club pick. The picks are usually too “out there” spiritually for me. And I see at now, at the half way point that this one is taking a turn for the worse in that category too. But it is very engaging.


  1. […] wasn’t sure about this one… The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.  But, then I was perusing Book Room Review’s Site (niiiiice site, by the way), and the review on there clinched it for […]
