Oprah Picks Ken Follett

Oprah Winfrey has chosen Ken Follett's 1989 novel, The Pillars of the Earth, for her next book club selection. Follett, who lives in Wales, considers the 973-page book, a 12th-century love story, one of his favorites. It still sells about 100,000 copies a year, according to an Associated Press article.

If you have never sampled Follett’s books, here’s a few to try:

World Without End (2007) (sequel to The Pillars of the Earth)

Whiteout (2004)

Hornet Flight (2002)

Code to Zero (2000)

The Hammer of Eden (1998)

The Third Twin (1996)

Lie Down With Lions (1986)

Eye of the Needle (1978)
