One final question…

What a tough question. I’d probably take a book about my heritage so that I wouldn’t forget. As much as I love Toni Morrison, alot of her stuff has ghosts in them which don’t match the stories my family told, plus I’m scary and don’t like ghosties (the baby, in Beloved, helloooo?). So for that reason I would probably choose The Color Purple. There’s so much to relate to.

Like this quote: Everything want to be loved.

It’s true, right? Who doesn’t want to be loved? That’s why I would have to memorize The Color Purple. Lots of good inspirational quotes inside.

What book would you memorize and why?

The Color Purple by Alice Walker

“All my life I had to fight. I had to fight my daddy. I had to fight my brothers. I had to fight my cousins and my uncles. A girl child ain’t safe in a family of men. But I never thought I’d have to fight in my own house. She let out her breath. I loves Harpo, she say. God knows I do. But I’ll kill him dead before I let him beat me.”
