New Oprah Bookclub Pick

A while ago I used to read along with the Oprah Book Club, and used to have some amazing discussions on her boards! These days, I am not as involved but I do keep an eye out to see what book it is that she is promoting. Yesterday she announced a new pick - The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski. I did really enjoy it when she was picking classics, books that I would never necessarily pick up and read myself, but this is the debut book from this author, and was only originally published a couple of months ago.

I have heard of it before, but not much. Anyone read it? Anyone going to read it?


  1. I've heard some good things about it, enough to put it on my wishlist a week or so ago, but not enough to actually go buy it yet.

    I suppose the good news about the Oprah announcement is that there will soon be a huge influx of available copies on BookMooch.

  2. I have been thinking about it. I have it requested because of the dog connection but haven't received it yet!

  3. I added it to my wishlist a couple of weeks ago because of a RIP review (this one. It sounds interesting, and I hope to get to it someday.

  4. I bought it right after it first came out and have tried a couple times to get into it. I guess I will try and finish reading it but its down on my things to read right now.

  5. I posted my review about it on September 13. I thought it was a great story. It's here for anyone interested:

  6. Marg, are you going to read the book? I am seriousy considering it. It'll be the only Oprah book I've read.
