A few authors were probably cracking open a bottle of something bubbly this past week.
Sociologist Martha Beck's reason? Her bestseller The Way of Integrity: Finding the Path to Your True Self was chosen for Oprah Winfrey's book club.
The Associated Press notes that Beck is often referred to as Winfrey's "life coach," so the selection is probably not surprising.
"As we all navigate this watershed moment in our collective history, The Way of Integrity provides a roadmap on the journey to truth," Winfrey said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the Story Prize finalists were also revealed this week:
These collections of short stories are competing for the grand prize of $20,000, though the runners-up each get $5,000.
The winner will be revealed April 13.
