Your Sizzling Summer Beach Book?
Oprah has reinstituted her book club, called Oprah’s Book Club 2.0. Her first pick is Cheryl Strayed’s Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, which hit #1 on the NY Times Hardcover Nonfiction list and #2 on the Combined Print and E-Book Nonfiction list. It’s the story of someone who comes undone by her mother’s death. Given the death sentence of a year by the doctor, her mother dies much sooner, and much too soon for Cheryl at age 22. She obliterates her grief many ways, eventually hitting rock bottom with heroin. Soon after, she decides to hike the Pacific Crest Trail.
