Books featured in the show are available to purchase through the Apple Books app. In addition to the latest selection, you can browse previous selections picked by Oprah and featured in Apple Books with what Apple calls “a beautiful and immersive experience.”

Your thoughts

Apple TV+ debuts new content every Friday, but the Cupertino firm continues to experiment with various release strategies, with some shows released on an episode-by-episode basis and others premiering with the first three episodes dropping at once.

“Little America” is the second adult Apple TV+ show to be released for binge-watching after “Dickinson”. Children shows like “Snoopy in Space” are also released for binge-watching.
