Book Buzz

  • Oprah has taken over Amazon (not that it’s a new phenomenon). The top three bestsellers as of this morning are all Eckhart Tolle books. I confess I haven’t jumped on Oprah’s bandwagon, and I don’t plan to. If I can’t find inner and spiritual peace without the aid of an Oprah book selection, I don’t deserve it.
  • In semi-book related news, I was very disappointed this week to read that John Goodman and Joan Cusak will play Becky Bloomwood’s parents in the Confessions of a Shopaholic movie. Granted, I should reserve judgment since I haven’t seen the movie, but don’t the filmmakers realize the book takes place in London and the Bloomwoods are British?
