Just in time for the summer reading season, Oprah Winfrey announced Friday that she’s bringing back her book club. In a video posted on the website of her OWN network, Winfrey said, “This time, it’s an interactive, online book club for our digital world. That’s why we’re calling it Book Club 2.0.

Her book club reboot is designed to take advantage of the new technologies available to readers. The e-book editions of her selections will be enhanced especially for the Oprah Book Club, with sharing capacities and notations from Winfrey herself. She also promises to use social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook to conduct the discussion about the book.

In the online video [see after the jump], Winfrey said was so enthusiastic about a book that she had to revive her book club in order to share it. That book is Cheryl Strayed’s “Wild,” a memoir about her 1,110-mile hike down the Pacific Crest Trail.

Holding up a hardcover edition of “Wild” to the camera, Winfrey said, “I still believe in books.” She urged readers in her book club to go and purchase the book from a neighborhood bookstore, if that was how they liked to read. Book Club 2.0 is not leaving print books behind.

Founded in 1996, Oprah’s Book Club became a fast track to fame and bestsellerdom. Sometimes she picked new novels, like Janet Fitch’s “White Oleander,” or an older book, like Toni Morrison’s “The Bluest Eye.” After picking Jonathan Franzen’s “The Corrections” in 2001, a controversy erupted over comments he made, and Winfrey suspended the Book Club. When she brought it back, it was less frequent, and initially stuck to classic works. In 2010, in a grand gesture of reconciliation and forgiveness, she selected Franzen’s next novel, “Freedom,” and he appeared on her show. She officially retired the book club later that year.

Details about Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 will be available in the forthcoming issue of “O Magazine,” which hits shelves next week.

PHOTO: Annular solar eclipse

May 18, 2012

If you live in a band across the southwestern United States, twilight will seem to come early on Sunday afternoon, well before the sun actually sets.

The cause: a rare annular solar eclipse — a ring of sunlight as the new moon, passing between Earth and the sun, blocks most, but not all, of the sun’s disc.

This is not the kind of total eclipse of which you usually see pictures — the moon blocking the sun completely, creating a few moments of near-night in the middle of the day, with only the sun’s ethereal corona visible around the moon’s edges. The sky will darken a bit, but there will still be a blindingly bright ring (an “annulus” in Latin) of sun, and it’s dangerous to look directly at it.

Still, there will be a striking sight to see, if you look at a heavily-filtered image projected onto a screen through binoculars or a small telescope, or protect your eyes with No. 14 arcwelders glass (not something found at most hardware stores).

The ring will be visible Sunday afternoon in a strip that begins on the California-Oregon coast and stretches southeastward across Reno, Nev., the Grand Canyon, and Albuquerque, N.M., and ends at sunset near Lubbock, Texas. In the map we’ve provided, the best viewing is in the yellow band; outside it, people will see a partial eclipse.

The moon’s shadow moves quickly — about 1,200 mph. Some times when the moon’s disc will be most centered over the sun’s are as follows:

 Eureka, Calif.: 6:28 p.m. PDT
 Reno, Nev.: 6:31 p.m. PDT
 Grand Canyon, Ariz.: 6:35 p.m. MST
 Albuquerque: 7:36 p.m. MDT (note time zone change)
 Lubbock: 8:36 p.m. CDT (another time zone change)

Why an annular eclipse instead of a total one? Because the moon, constant in size as it may appear to us, does not move in a perfect circle around Earth. Its orbit is slightly elliptical. On average, it’s about 239,000 miles away, but at its closest it comes within about 225,000 miles of us. At its farthest — as it will be Sunday — it’s a little more than 250,000 miles away. It’s just enough of a difference so that the moon will only cover 88 percent of the sun.

(You may recall the “super moon” of two weeks ago; that night the full moon coincided with the low point of the moon’s orbit, making it look a little more vivid than usual.)

The Interior Department points out that a number ofnational parks — Redwoods and Lassen in California, Zion in Utah, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Arizona, Petroglyph National Monument in New Mexico — will all be in the zone from which the ring will be visible. More information from the National Park Service here.

San Francisco, Sacramento, Yosemite, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and Denver will all see a partial eclipse — the sun dwindling to a crescent. Even some distant cities, including Chicago, Dallas and Buffalo, will see a fair portion of the sun blocked by the passing moon.

But if you’re in the eclipse path, you really just need a place with a good clear view westward. (Check our weather page for a local forecast, though most of the eclipse zone can expect clear skies, at the moment.) You may want to go to a local observatory or planetarium, where viewing parties are likely.

And if you don’t feel like investing in welder’s glasses, you may be happy — seriously — with a piece of paper, or leafy trees around you. Prick a small hole in the paper and it will act as a tiny lens, projecting a miniscule image of the sun onto the pavement. Likewise, take advantage of the natural pinholes in many leaves. As the eclipse approaches maximum, look down, not up. If you’re lucky, you’ll see hundreds of little eclipse images dancing on the ground beneath your feet.

The laws of orbital mechanics make solar and lunar eclipses fairly common, actually — just not necessarily visible from where you live. If you’re underwhelmed by Sunday’s annular eclipse, there will be a total eclipse on Nov. 13 — but it will only be visible from Australia and the South Pacific.

April 5, 2012           9:04 PM

Chuck D is often quoted as calling hip-hop “the black CNN.” These days, it’s more like TMZ with a beat.

No sooner did Kanye West’s latest single, “Theraflu,” surface late Wednesday night — in which the Chicago-native rapper says, “I admit I fell in love with Kim” — than gossip sites reported Thursday morning that West and reality TV star Kim Kardashian are indeed a couple.

“Kim and Kanye have now just started dating,” a source told People magazine, adding that the two high-profile celebs are keeping things “light” and “seeing where it goes.”

Where it went Wednesday night was to dinner and a movie (“The Hunger Games”) in New York. Thursday morning, TMZ.com published photos of Kardashian “leaving from the building where Kanye lives … wearing the same clothes she rocked to the movies last night.” Kardashian is scheduled to host NBC’s “Today” show Friday morning.

West, 34, has appeared with Kardashian, 31, on “Kourtney & Kim Take New York,” one of several Kardashian family-brand reality TV series.

“We’ve been friends for years,” Kardashian told Ryan Seacrest in a radio interview last month. “We just support each other. That’s what friends do.”

In fact, their relationship goes back at least as far as West’s previous romance.

West split up with former girlfriend Amber Rose in 2010, and Rose later claimed that Kardashian was the cause. But Kardashian last year wed NBA player Kris Humphries — the marriage that infamously lasted 72 days. Meanwhile, just last month, Rose married another rapper, Wiz Khalifa.

Most of this drama is covered in the middle of “Theraflu”:

Only n—- I got respect for is Wiz

And I’ll admit, I fell in love with Kim

Around the time she had fell in love with him

Well that’s cool, baby girl, do ya thang

Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team

Break out your gossip-decoding rings for this one.

The “him” for Kim in that lyric is Humphries, and the last line refers to Jay-Z, West’s current touring partner and co-owner of Humphries’ team, the New Jersey Nets.

“Theraflu,” however, was not the song fans were expecting to hear first this week from Kanye’s camp.

Overnight, West was expected to unveil the song “Mercy,” an official single release from an upcoming mixtape compilation from West’s G.O.O.D. record label, a branch of Island Def Jam. “Mercy” features West collaborating with Pusha T, Big Sean and 2 Chainz. The full album is expected to include G.O.O.D. artists John Legend, Common, Kid Cudi, CyHi da Prynce, Mr. Hudson and others.

But according to Chicago hip-hop blog Fake Shore Drive, “Theraflu” actually was a leak from West’s next solo project. West released the acclaimed “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” album in 2010, and last year saw his collaboration with Jay-Z on “Watch the Throne.” Most online streams of “Theraflu” were yanked by midday Thursday.

West has used the Christian holiday as a G.O.O.D. marketing gimmick before. He began posting tracks from “Fantasy” on Good Friday in 2010.

No release date for the new G.O.O.D. compilation has been set, but producer Mannie Fresh recently told MTV News it was “pretty close” to being finished. “Songs phenomenal, everything,” he said. “It’s an album that’s all over the place, it’s not just one thing. It’s not just that you’re gonna hear some Southern hip-hop or whatever. You’re gonna hear everything.”

Meanwhile, “Theraflu” is produced by Hit-Boy, who also helmed West and Jay-Z’s “Watch the Throne” hit single “N—-s in Paris” (the song they enjoy repeating and repeating as a concert encore).

West and Jay-Z will take their “Throne” tour to Britain this summer, and Jay-Z has hinted that a second “Throne” album may be coming: “You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a ‘Throne’ album next year. We’ve really found our zone.”
