Living The Life of O...really!
When I first heard of Robyn Okrant and her 365 day journey to O-ville I rolled my eyes - why on earth would I want to read about someone trying to live a life of an enigma (dolls I have my issues with the O but that's another post altogether). To my surprise Okrant's touching Living Oprah: My One-Year Experiment To Walk the Walk of the Queen of Talk (Center Street) was an enlightening tome from a woman who invested her time, money and marriage on the ideologies of Oprah (or rather Oprah's staff - again another post altogether). From her struggles to maintaining a sound mind (and not going bankrupt) while attempting to live her 'best life' Okrant discovered that living a life by her own design is what truly matters - it's an amazing read for O acolytes and those of us who just loves a really good book!
