I don't know if you had seen my post in the Books Read this week thread, but I had just finished one of her recommendations and it was an awful book. I've read a few of her recommendations in the past, but I don't pay very much attention to the list. It's something to fall back on if I'm looking for a book to read.

I read a Toni Morrison novel that she had recommended years ago and though it was a decent read, I wasn't really interested in the genre. Oprah and I do not share the same taste in books so I don't tend to read her recommendations.

I do think it's good that she gets more people to read and boosts an authors popularity and sales especially authors who have not been discovered on a large scale.

I never really have. This might sound bad but Oprah is too influential I think, so I decided I do not want to be influenced by her so I don't usually read books just because she recommends them. I may end up reading something that was on her book club but the fact that they were on it is never a factor.

Do you tend to read books suggested by Oprah? Are you usually satisfied with them?
