Oprah Winfrey boosted author William Faulkner up the US bestseller list - 24 hours after she named him as her summer reading choice.

Faulkner's boxed set of three novels - As I Lay Dying, THE SOUND AND THE Fury and LIGHT IN AUGUST - was named top choice for OPRAH'S BOOK CLUB on the billionaire's talk show on Friday (03JUN05).

And just a day later, it became the number two seller on website AMAZON.COM - second only to Jk Rowling's highly anticipated HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE, which is due to be released in July (05).
