The Associated Press reported the picks Sunday after purchasing a copy of the new Dickens volume, which has Winfrey’s book club logo on the cover.

“Dickens for the holidays because it’s the best of times, readers,” Winfrey said.

Winfrey said on Monday’s show that she has never read Dickens before.

“Normally, I only choose books that I’ve read, but I must shamefully admit to you all that I have never read Dickens,” she told her audience.

Oprah’s Book Club has nearly 2 million online members, according to Harpo Productions. Winfrey has said she will take the book club with her when she moves to her new cable station, the Oprah Winfrey Network, which launches Jan. 1.
