Oprah's Ultimate Favorite Things 2010
We saved the best for the farewell season—the most fantastical favorite things ever!
Oprah says Jay-Z's book Decoded
has given her a whole new perspective and context—and many aha! moments—about the culture of this music. Much more than a memoir, Decoded
is a personal homage to hip-hop that includes a collection of lyrics and their meanings, as well as moving essays about topics ranging from Hurricane Katrina to the decline of the music industry. "If you know anybody who loves hip-hip, they are going to love this book," Oprah says.
