me: what are you reading these days? (expecting her to say some ya novel)
sis: i just bought atonement, balzac and the little chinese seamstress and memory keeper's daughter
me: ..... hey i'm reading atonement too! are you sure it's not too stiff in language for you?
sis: ya i'm reading that now. it's okay so far.
...it makes me feel weird that my baby sister (we're 12 years apart) is reading things i'm reading. Which means we can have a book group.
Also... i just finished reading the first sex scene in Atonement. And the delicate description of the word cunt. I don't know how I feel about my little sister reading that.
