I finally read Alice Walker's The Color Purple. It was beautifully written and incredibly moving. I think every American should read this book, and I'm a little bit sad it took me this long. Now I want to see the movie version, though I'm sure it won't be as incredible as the book.
Some of the most beautiful, human emotion and understanding of the spiritual is in this book.
I'm so glad I finally got a library card.... it's already coming in very handy! Up next: Iris Murdoch's The Bell, The Complete Stories of Evelyn Waugh, and Jonathon Safran Foer's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
