Quote Of The Day

Julia Keller:

“Oprah’s last [book club] pick was Jonathan Franzen’s ‘Freedom’ (2010), a novel so wildly praised and little scrutinized, a novel that inspired such fanatical devotion based on so little actual achievement that it ought to run for president.”

  1. wow … that is an awesome quote πŸ™‚

    I wonder what kind of royalties Oprah gets for putting these groovy books on her list.

  2. Thanks bill.

    According to the link, Oprah’s latest book club choice is Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations. I’m sure Mr. Dickens’ heirs will be eternally grateful. πŸ˜‰

    I don’t read many novels, and I’ve never read any of Franzen’s stuff, but Mr. Examiner read “Freedom” and agreed with Keller that it was waaaay over-hyped—just like our POTUS.

    As for royalties—Oprah don’t need no stinkin’ royalties—she’s already the richest woman on the planet—or close to it!

    PS: Thanks for the heads-up on my html problem.

  3. Oprah passed up the need category a long time ago … but sometimes it seems the greed category kicks in. Some become increasingly ruthless in business, fighting for the next level of high. Junkies don’t really NEED more meth, but they can’t kick the habit …

    The “mo’ money” habit doesn’t rot your teeth, but it can corrupt the soul (so I hear). Oprah has her own new age religion too … so maybe she requires holy offerings from her flock as a sign of devotion.

    Fortunately I haven’t received fanatical devotion like these two Big O’s from Chicago, so I remain a humble man. πŸ™‚
