Oklahoma marked its centennial of statehood in 2007, and state readers held a literary celebration! Oklahoma Reads Oklahoma was a unique opportunity for citizens to read and discuss books that explore the Oklahoma experience.

From 2004 to 2007, Oklahomans selected one book for a statewide reading and discussion program. Citizens used this site to learn about the six finalists each year and vote for their favorite.

The winning selection for 2004 was The Honk and Holler Opening Soon by Billie Letts. The Oklahoma Reads Oklahoma Book for 2005 was Walking the Choctaw Road: Stories from Red People Memory by Tim Tingle, and the 2006 selection was Dayna Dunbar's The Saints and Sinners of Okay County. The Oklahoma Reads Oklahoma Book for 2007 was Fire in Beulah
