Okay so we have another tie, but it is getting into the month and people want to get reading so I went to random.org and put in 1 - 2 and let random.org pick! So, thanks to random.org we are going to read The Color Purple by Alice Walker!
Description: Celie is a poor black woman whose letters tell the story of 20 years of her life, beginning at age 14 when she is being abused and raped by her father and attempting to protect her sister from the same fate, and continuing over the course of her marriage to "Mister," a brutal man who terrorizes her. Celie eventually learns that her abusive husband has been keeping her sister's letters from her and the rage she feels, combined with an example of love and independence provided by her close friend Shug, pushes her finally toward an awakening of her creative and loving self.
