Me to Shoes:  Are you full up with books to read right now?

Shoes:  Yeah, but what do you have?

Me:  "Year of the Flood" by Margaret Atwood.

Shoes:  That sounds like a chick book.

Me:  It's dystopian.  I don't think of dystopian novels as chick lit.

Shoes:  It's a dystopian chick novel.

Me:  The end of the world is a literature that appeals to the feminine?

Shoes:  In the, "Oh my god, there's no more "O Network" or "Real Housewives of New Jersey" and the world doesn't have anymore yogurt covered raisins" type of dystopia.

Pause.

Shoes:  Ok. Give me the book.

    I just recently bought this book. Did you like it? I've not read it yet...my stacks are high and yet I keep getting more books. I love books!

    It was interesting! Not one I'd recommend to my conservative peeps, but I think you'd be just fine. ;) It wasn't light or uplifting, but I kept turning the page and turning the page ...
