  • Hi everybody.

  • So, I've been keeping a secret

  • for months now.

  • And I've gotta tell ya,

  • it's hard for me to keep secrets.

  • Especially when I really, really

  • like something.

  • I want everybody to know it immediately.

  • But, I've kept this a secret until now.

  • I got an advanced copy

  • of what everybody is calling

  • 'the book of the season,'

  • former First Lady, Michelle Obama's

  • new book, Becoming.

  • And I gotta tell ya, I loved it so much,

  • I've already read it twice.

  • I'm gonna tell y'all,

  • this book is everything

  • you wanted to know,

  • and so much you didn't even

  • KNOW you wanted to know!

  • It's a tour de force.

  • I gotta say I laughed, and I cried,

  • it is exquisitly written.

  • She just opens up herself!

  • It's so vulnerable.

  • And I'd say that

  • even if I didn't know her.

  • I knew I had to choose it

  • as my latest Book Club selection,

  • cause it's so great

  • I couldn't not choose it.

  • So I want the whole world

  • to read this book,

  • I know everybody already is

  • preordering.

  • And if you're in a Book Club,

  • I tell you you should read it

  • together.

  • Read Becoming together.

  • It is Michelle Obama's

  • personal story of course,

  • but I know it's going to spark

  • within you the desire to think

  • about your own becoming.

  • The book is available

  • starting tomorrow.

  • So get yourself a copy.

  • And, while you're at it

  • buy every woman you know a copy.
