#2 The Color Purple by Alice Walker

 It’s difficult to write about this book without thinking of the movie.  After all, I’ve only read the book once, but I’ve seen the movie countless times.  Who can forget Oprah’s angry, sweaty face stomping through the cornfield to rip Whoopi a new one? “You told Harpo ta’ beat me?” Too rich!   I think of The Color Purple as a sad story, but I’ll usually quote some dialogue from it in an attempt to be funny. Rainy day? “It’s gon’ rain on yo’ hey-ed” is my mantra.   Ask me if I think the economy will turn around and I’ll respond, “Could be, could be not.  Who’s to say?”  I’ve got tons.
