Oprah is the sensational owner of the Oprah Network and also hosted the Oprah Show which was how she rose to fame. As an African-American, she has appealed to civil rights issues, equality and has explored topics that many would never consider to explore. During her career she became more than just a talk show host. She became a force all her own to reckon with. This is of course how she was able to start her own network, magazine and you guessed it… a book club.
A lot of her books are about self-improvement or teach some important lesson or you to subscribe to. If you ever wondered what kind of reading a multimillionaire talk show host is into, you will want to read this article.
Otherwise… why are you still reading this?!
Alright, let us get down to brass tacks here and explore Oprah’s 5 favorite books.
1 – Discover the Power Within You by Eric Butterworth
Eric Butterworth is an acclaimed spiritual teacher internationally. Butterworth’s work consisted of several books, with the main mission to help everyone on earth to understand a kind of “oneness” with God.
2 – A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
This book is hailed as a guide, a kind of play by play book, to living a life that can become your best possible life.
3 – The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
Kingsolver has been hailed as one of the foremost observers of history. In this political novel, you follow a family as they must battle through dramatic turmoil in postcolonial Africa. A book that has been hailed to offer great insight into human nature itself, the Poisonwood Bible is a worthwhile read.
4- Night by Elie Wiesel
A short but nightmarish read, Night is the memoirs of a childhood that had to suffer through the concentration camps that have come to highlight ultimate human evil. While the story itself is about the Holocaust and it is a terrifying read, there is a lot to gain from this book. Oprah has said that from reading this book, she gained courage from the child’s courage.
5 – A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
Oprah says this about A Fine Balance, “It takes us out of our own little shell and exposes us to a whole other world out there.”
This book is considered a Dickensian novel in the way it is written and the themes the novel explores. The novel takes place during the Emergency in India and is a teaching tool for helping people understand cultures they may never had encountered before in their lives.
There you have it! These are just 5 of Oprah’s favorite novels. Are they worth reading? Well, it really depends if any of them sound of interest to you. I have read books that have been a part of Oprah’s book club, some are absolutely amazing, and others are kind of boring. Though it is always intriguing learning about what a millionaire enjoys reading. It cannot hurt right?
So go to your nearest book store (or book website) and buy / download a few of these books!
