One of the great things about having a blog is that it jogs my memory about the books that I have read over the last couple of years. I still don’t remember all the nitty gritty details but if I glance at a review it triggers a fair amount of the book to come back to me.
There are probably at least a thousand books that I read prior to starting my blog and my memory of them is rather nebulous. Either I will have read them and know that I thought they were good but still don’t remember anything that happened, I confuse the plot with other books, or I have heard so much about a book that I think I may have read it too. The Color Purple fits indistinctly into one of those categories, so that is why I was really excited when Heather (Age 30+…A Lifetime of Books) and I fixed upon the month of July to read this together, and hopefully with some of you as well.
This will be pretty painless. We are just gauging interest now, and in fact on Heather’s post quite a few people are up for it, but I will let you know hen you can sign up on Heather’s blog. She will do a mid-month post with some questions and I will write the wrap up post her on this blog, which is more my speed. I tried to do Gone With the Wind as a weekly thing, and failed miserably. I liked Michelle’s (Literarily Speaking) thoughts on Gone With the Wind, though.
