Oprah launching ‘Book Club 2.0,’ your mom now knows what ‘webisode’ means
Everyone! Check under your chairs! It’s a…new book club from Oprah! Yep, the former queen of daytime TV is revamping her famed literary organization for the 21st century. Winfrey says she was so taken by Cheryl Strayed’s Wild, that she absolutely had to get back on the book peddling bandwagon. The talk show icon will be launching digital editions of the book for the Kindle, Nook and iPad on Monday, featuring exclusive content like a reader’s guide. Webisodes featuring Winfrey will go up each week and readers can submit questions via Twitter and Facebook. The whole thing leads up to a live streaming interview with the author on July 22nd. More info — and a video of a woman who desperately needs someone to give her that talk show back — after the break.
