Check your Twitter: Oprah Winfrey has some news.

The talk show host tweeted Monday that her first new book club pick in a year will be announced Friday, Sept. 18. In her announcement, Winfrey stated she had "never made a selection like 'this.'"

The week of Sept. 14 could be a record-breaker for the publishing industry. It starts that Monday with the release of Sen. Ted Kennedy's "True Compass," followed the next day by Dan Brown's "The Lost Symbol" and capped by Winfrey's choice, which almost surely will sell hundreds of thousands of copies.

Winfrey's most recent pick was David Wroblewski's "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle." It was a word-of-mouth hit last summer and became a blockbuster in the fall after Winfrey endorsed it.
