What I Know for Sure
240 pages; Flatiron Books
For nearly 15 years, Oprah's column has been the first page many readers turn to each month when they sit down with a copy of O. Now the best of those columns have been collected and updated in a keepsake volume perfectly sized for bedside reading (Flatiron Books). One of our favorite passages:

"Everything I do all day, I do in preparation for my reading time. Give me a great novel or memoir, some tea, and a cozy spot to curl up in, and I'm in heaven. I love to live in another person's thoughts; I marvel at the bonds I feel with people who come alive on the page, regardless of how different their circumstances might be from mine. I not only feel I know these people, but I also recognize more of myself. Insight, information, knowledge, inspiration, power: All that and more can come through a good book."
