When Oprah Winfrey likes a book, she definitely likes a book. An avid reader, some 8 or so books from her famous Book Club have been adapted to film; so if you're an author with a novel, and it somehow grabs Oprah's attention, there's a good chance it will become a film.

I don’t know if you remember this or not, but around 2005 I took off from touring my Madea plays for about 5 years. During that time, I was working mostly on movies and TV shows. Well, as much as I love to be out on stage and doing a live Madea show, the time has come again for me to take a long break from the stage. I have some major projects that I'm working on that will require a lot of my time and effort. Just know that I did not want to stop this tour until I had hit as many cities as possible. So I'm going to finish out this Fall leg of the tour and then take a long break.
