The Color Purple – Movie Trailer & Discussion

I just read and loved this book for the read-a-long that I am doing this month with Heather from Age 30+…A Lifetime of Books. After reading such a beautiful novel and getting to know these characters, this simple movie traile, which just shows the faces of the characters in the novel brought tears to my eyes. The first and second time that I watched it! I guess at the time they must have been relying on the fact that a large part of their audience had read the book.

If you have signed up to read with us, and even if you haven’t signed up,  please stop by Heather’s discussion post of The Color Purple, and chime in if you have read the novel. I will have a wrap-up post at the end of the month where you can share final thoughts and link to your reviews and of the book

If you have not read this book, I cannot recommend it highly enough.

  1. I can’t sign up…I just can’t! Even though I want to. I never read the book, but the movie is fabulous. I’ve also heard great things about the Broadway play.

  2. I haven’t read the book or seen the movie. I know that I will someday, I just don’t know when. I have too much going on right now to join the readalong though.
