Ladies, we don't think you'll have any trouble getting your hands on Oprah Winfrey's latest picks for the book club, but we'll be rather shocked if you haven't at least read one of them already.

According to sources, Oprah's choices for her next book club reads are two Charles Dickens classics, A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations. Because the stories are being stamped with Oprah's approval, a new single bound book is being released containing both stories for $20.

Course, if you strapped for cash or want to save a tree, you can download the electronic version. In fact, Amazon has Great Expectations for free for the Kindle!

It's been a long time since we've sat down with these two stories. Maybe it is time to revisit them.

Think U might jump on Oprah's bandwagon and read some of the classics?

    I don't need Oprah to tell me to read the classics. Sometimes she picks something new that wouldn't get much press otherwise. But c'mon, Dickens does not need Oprah to tell people his books are good.



  3. 3

    Okra's get a cut for every book sold; it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with reading!

    Gawd, her ass is HUGE!

    A Tale of Two Cities is one of my favorite books, but do Charles Dickens books really need her "seal of approval". Oprah just annoys me I guess.

    You spelled school wrong, genius.

    He is a brilliant idea for all you soccer moms/ housewives that don’t have a mind of your own and think what Oprah says is Bible… Read what the hell you want and get a life. Take a hike Oprah your exit is long overdue.

    No, I don't need Oprah's help in deciding what to read. I actually prefer to think for myself.



  9. 9

    Oh No you didn't girlfriend!!

    God you are a pain in the ASS. Can you PLEASE stop giving spoilers. Some of us like to be part of the revel when SHE does it…not when you feel it's necessary. I understand you don't know what the classics are, but really Mario….enough is enough.



  11. 11

    You fools REALLY THINK Okra read "A Tale of Two Cities" last night?



  12. 12

    Personally, I do not need liar Oprah to tell me what books to read. I am capable enough to choose my subject matter. I am so glad I am not part of the Oprah Sheeple Movement. THINK FOR YOURSELVES, people!!!!!!!

    What did they come out with a comic book version or something? Please, unless they reprinted these books onto every Pizza Hut take out menu there is no way your inbred no child left behind ass very read them.

    She probably paid somebody to read it to her….

    Re: fedup1964 – I wouldn't doubt it if she hasn't read the books. Some of her selections she barely says anything about, and others she goes right over the top - like Ekhart Tolle's psuedo-buddism manifesto. I guess she read that one, but I certainly didn't share her enthusiasm for it.

    I cannot stand this cow.. Charity begins at home not buying another giant home.. gluttony… She will only help out in Africa.. not in the country she lives in and has made her so much money… oink oink…



  17. 17

    OMG! I can't get over HOW HUGE HER ASS IS!

    Doesn't Okra take the advice of her nutritionists to STOP SHOVELING FOOD IN HER MOUTH??

    Nice facial crease (on both sides). It's a giant full face U.

    You should read them over again. More understanding, comprehension and realizations come with age. Black Beauty is another one.

    Re: Madea4321 – Your bizarre assumption that soccer moms wouldn't have minds of their own just because they're helping raise children (as someone apparently must have done for you) belies a small intelligence.
