read. You have to admit that she has...since all the books
she chooses become instant bestsellers. So, *someone(s)*
must like her picks <g>. Not me, though...and evidently
not you either..lol! ;)
- YAY! i'm back lol my computer had a nasty virus and i couldnt open internet
I totally have to agree, all the books she chooses are depressing and
generally about sad awful things in the world. I read to get away from all
that. Infact i read fantasy so i dont have to think about this world at all.
So i wont touch her books with a ten foot pole.
Oprah seems the way to go if you want to wallow in the misery of the world
for a few days lol
HOWEVER, i think that a celebrity promoting books that they enjoy is
wonderful, because how many people can go onto a best seller list and find
something they like, a lot of it is crap.
If a lot of celebritys all plugged the books they enjoyed though then it
would be great exposure for all the genres, cause they cant all like the
same things ;p
