New "Oprah" Book

On November 14, 2007, Oprah Winfrey chose The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett as the 60th Oprah’s Book Club selection. She said, "It’s such a great read… it’s like nothing I would ever read or had ever read before… I got to 800 pages, and I slowed myself down because I didn’t want it to end."

Follett, 58 years old, is a native of Cardiff, Wales and is known for his thrillers such as Eye of the Needle and Lie Down With Lions. He describes The Pillars of the Earth as a love story set in England in the 12th century.
