What I Know For Sure
"What I know for sure is that reading opens you up. It exposes you and gives you access to anything your mind can hold." ~ pg .15
Everyone knows Oprah Winfrey. The legendary talk show host, black billionaire, author, actress, network owner, magazine creator...the list goes on. This woman is full of experiences and "Aha!" moments. In What I Know For Sure, Oprah collected and revised fourteen years worth of the life lessons she shared in the O Magazine column.
I am not a big Oprah fan. Shocker, right? Yes, I know I am in the minority here. Well this book proved why. There are quite a few moments where she throws in "my friend" when talking about another celeb. The subtle bragging irks me to no end. But that aside, I took away a few life lessons that could be applied to my daily life.
After finishing the short book, readers are left with a question. "At the end of the day, what exactly do I know for sure?"
