Read at Your Own Risk

Weeks ago, I decided to join a book review group, the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die. Of course, this is a chance to share my thoughts, plus it’s really to force me to make reading a habit again and to force me more to practice what I ought to, which is to write, write, write! It’s a case of hitting three birds with one stone 😉

So, how coincidental that my first review was that of The Color Purple, and who should make it to the news now but the Steven Spielberg-movie version’s stars Oprah Winfrey and Rae Brown Chong. Oprah played Sofia, first wife to Harpo (just try to read that name backwards) and Rae was Squeak/Mary Agnes, second wife)? So coincidental, too, that in a sort of way, the issue they are facing now sort of reflects an aspect of the story. Ironic, actually, that the latter should make racist comments against another belonging to the same race.

Anyway, if you want to have an idea of what the story is about, you can find my review here:



This is my first review at the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die


Please LIKE if you indeed like it. But regardless of whether you do or not, just read it anyway and the other reviews. Then read the actual books, or submit your own reviews even 🙂

Any constructive comments? Feel free to message me here…ENJOY!!!
