Kyra, this seems like a very interesting book, I'd like to look it over... I wonder if B&N has it? Thanks for sharing!

Linda, Thank you for your note. Books printed by Blurb.com are typically only available online at their site. In the post, I do have a link to the book - which you can "flip" through and preview online. Enjoy!

Thank you Kyra, for the visual book and tribute to Oprah. Many of us would know so many things we find out about from this site. Keep keeping us informed. I zoomed in and was able to read the print.
