CHICAGO, IL - Oprah announced today on her daily television show that she will be canceling her book club. "It is with great sadness that I am announcing the termination of this program. I feel that in this new age of technology and twitter, there is simply no more room left for reading" said she.

There was a time in our nations history when being selected as a part of Oprah's book club was akin to winning a Nobel prize. However, recently polls have shown that reading in the United States has gone down 70% in the last ten years, and most teens would "dislike" reading if given the choice on Facebook.

This announcement was met with both outrage and optimism.

Stacy from Long Island said "This is the worst thing that could have happened, now what are we supposed to read!?"

Mike from Carson City stated " I have only read three books in my life, two and a half of them were a part of Oprah's book club."

Some fans of her show were thrilled with the announcement. "Now that Oprah has canceled her book club, we never have to read another book again."

Todays announcement has rocked the reading world, and both Borders and Barnes and Nobel are both planning on closing 20% of their stores by the end of this year.
