I am not pretending that I've read all the books from Oprah's Book Club. Heck. I probably have read very few of them. Without fail, though, every single book I've read winds up being this long saga of humanity's inhumanity to (wo)man, sad and tragic books that actually are difficult for me to read. I just finished "The House of Sand and Fog". I stopped reading it for a time because it grieved me so. The ending was awful, and it made me cry buckets. I realize that sometimes life is grossly unfair. I realize that life is sometimes difficult and people sometimes are monstrous, but I do find myself wondering if Oprah ever reads happy books? Does she ever read anything just for grins and chuckles? Cripes.
