The Color Purple (summer read-a-long)

The Color Purple (Anniversary)Hello and welcome to a read-a-long of THE COLOR PURPLE, by Alice Walker, hosted by myself and Nicole at Linus's Blanket.  The rules for the read-a-long are simple: comment on this post letting us know you're joingin us, read the book this month, post a review, and add your link to Nicole's recap at the end of the month.  To make things a bit more interesting I'll post discussion questions in the middle of the month.  You can answer them on your own blog, you can answer them in the comment section, or you can ignore them completely - it's up to you.


This is really one of the simplest read-a-longs ever - are you in?
 

PS. Get bonus points from me if you watch the movie and review it as well!

I'm in! Audible had the audio book for $4.95 so, even though I own a copy, I downloaded that instead. It's read by Alice Walker! I couldn't resist!

You guys really know how to make a readalong easy! :)

Heather - I am going to post about this tomorrow morning in my meanderings and stopped by for the link. My comment earlier about joining in shows up in the leave a comment space - but not on your blog.

I have never seen anything like that so commenting again to see if it shows this time. :)

Heather J. said...

Glad to see so many of you joining us! I'm REALLY enjoying the book so far - been reading it while I'm on vacation and don't want to put it down.

I'm not participating (I read the book when it came out and engaged in many discussions at the time), but I am looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks.

I'm in!

I wish I had seen this post earlier! There is no way I could possibly read the whole book tonight.
I have read the book, but it has been years. I will be checking out the posts! Would love to see people's answers to the discussion questions!
