52 books: #2

book 2: shoe addicts annonymous by beth harbison. 2007, st. martin’s press. 327 pages.

this book was a christmas present that i think was meant as a subtle hint–as in if there is such a thing as a shoe addicts anonymous, i should begin attending meetings immediately. seriously, i have shoe issues. currently in my living room i can see 22 pairs of shoes. that doesn’t include all the ones behind the couch and in the closet. but i digress.

this is a fun, chick-lit read. centered around four women who, for various reasons, can no longer afford their shoe addictions. they form a meeting based on a mutual shoe size to trade shoes and feed their never ending compulsion for fabulous new shoes. along the way the four who began as strangers find friendship, find more of their identity beyond the shoes, and solve a mystery along the way. and i have to say, that for a self-confessed shoe addict like myself, the ending has the ultimate dream job.

while this little book won’t win any literary awards, it’s a nice, enjoyable read at the end of a stressful day.

next up: waiter rant
