It seems like an such odd choice that I’m not sure I’ve got it right. But, right there on Oprah’s Book Club site, with the Oprah Book Club logo printed on the jacket is A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. It’s also up on the Amazon site as the new selection, so I guess this is the one.

It’s certainly a book that fits Oprah’s interests, but, unlike other Oprah Book Club picks, this is not a book to read as literature. It’s no One Hundred Years of Solitude or Anna Karenina. It’s also no Just in Case.

Right now, the book’s sales rank is #77,647 on Amazon. It will be interesting to see where it is after the show airs.

Oprah’s site also announces a 10-week webinar on the book that will run on Wednesday nights for ten weeks, beginning March 3rd. To be part of it, you have to reserve a seat.
