How Oprah's Book Club Fits Into Apple’s New Entertainment Strategy

Apple announced that it is bringing Oprah’s Book Club to its streaming service, Apple TV+, and its e-reading app, Apple Books. Oprah’s “first book selection is ‘The Water Dancer’ by Ta-Nehisi Coates, available for pre-order now on Apple Books in both ebook and audiobook formats,” according to the press release. Apple Books will provide information about each selection and list previous ones. A new Reading Goals feature helps readers track their progress and “make reading a daily habit more easily.”

Oprah “will interview Coates for the first installment of her new exclusive Apple TV+ series, ‘Oprah’s Book Club,’ premiering November 1. A new episode will be available every two months. For every Oprah’s Book Club selection sold on Apple Books, Apple will make a contribution to the American Library Association to support local libraries, fund programs that give access to everyone and create lifelong readers at an early age.”

For more information, read the press release.
