LOS ANGELES, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- U.S. chat show "The Talk" is starting up a segment called "Book Buzz," which will focus on new, thought-provoking books, CBS said Tuesday.

"With subjects ranging from surviving frenemies [friends who are rivals or actually enemies], and coping with financial infidelity, to surprising -- even controversial -- approaches to parenting, the selected books will provide food for thought and problem-solving advice," the network said in a release.

"One month before the on-air discussion of the book, the hosts will announce 'The Talk Book Buzz' selection and encourage viewers to read it so they are prepared to join the conversation," the release said. "The hosts will ask viewers to weigh in, share their opinions and raise interesting questions via Twitter or Facebook for the upcoming discussion. During the show itself, the hosts will invite audience members to participate in the dialogue."

The first book will be Iris Krasnow's "The Secret Lives of Wives: Women Share What It Really Takes to Stay Married." Hosts Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne and Sara Gilbert are to discuss this title with the author and some of the women featured in the book in a special segment to air Nov. 11.
