Once burned, twice: Oprah's Book Club

NO WAY. Oprah picked Jonathan Franzen's latest book, Freedom, to be in her book club. Remember the kerfuffle over Corrections? Instead of linking to a story, I'll just recap: Oprah picked The Corrections to be in her book club, basically ensuring that it would sell. He was bitchy and smarmy about Oprah's club, saying that the male readers he wanted would be put off by Oprah's selection. She de-selected him! He was pretty snobby about her after that... and now she picks him again!!! DRAMA

BTW: Much respect to Oprah. She is a kick ass media mogul.
