Oprah's free book, get it now

Oprah is at it again with another freebie...if you're a member that is. Starting today, August 3, all Oprah.com members can download Let the Great World Spin, a novel written by Colum McCann.

The book takes readers on a journey to 1970's New York, a period of transition and promise, but more important, a time before 9/11. It is listed on Oprah Magazine's 25 Books of the Summer, and has a retail price of $25.00.

The download is only available for 48 hours and the promotion will end on Wednesday, August 5 at 10:59pm EST.

This is a strategic effort for Oprah.com to gain new members, so it's not too late to join to receive the book. Oprah is seen as a promotion engine for upcoming products and especially new authors. In 2005, Oprah's Book Club had over 600,000 members and growing.
Oprah Winfrey's Empire
Television: When 'The Oprah Winfrey Show,' went national in 1986, it became the number one talk show in syndication within just a year. Winfrey is expanding her reach in television after a recent deal inked with Discovery Health Channel to create her very own network, OWN (which stands for The Oprah Winfrey Network). OWN is expected to launch in 2010.
