Oprah’s List: 10 Books to Watch For in January 2010

December 23, 2009

Oprah.com has released a list of ten books to watch for in January 2010.  The list will probably propel its inhabitants to stardom in 2010, but I’m not too excited about most of the choices, with the exception of two:

  • Unfinished Desires by Gail Godwin – In this faux memoir, Godwin writes about a Catholic school in the 1950’s.
  • Stones into Schools by Greg Mortenson – Education in Afghanistan is Mortenson’s focus. (He is also the author of Three Cups of Tea.)

What books are you excited for in the new year?

    I am reading “Stones Into Schools” right now. I was so excited when I found out that “Three Cups of Tea” would have a follow-up. I’m not very far into it yet but I love it so far. I also read “The Help” last weekend and it was really cute and enjoyable. If you’ve read it I’d be interested to hear what you think.
