End of the Oprah era


The publishing world is mourning the end of the Oprah TV show – the final episode is broadcast today. The NY Times reports. I went to college in 1986 and can remember the Oprah show quickly becoming an established part of day-time TV, especially for a bunch of lazy students with nothing better to do. From The Secret to The Story of Edgar Sawtelle to James Frey and Eckhart Tolle, the Oprah has been a bookselling phenomenon. Love her or loathe her, she put books in front of millions of people.
