^Is it a good book? What's it about? I'm running out of books to read.

I just finished re-reading "Playing for Pizza" by John Grisham. :)

I own a copy. Read it last year and didn't like it. My mom, on the contrary, is a fan of Grisham, I believe she's read all his books.

A couple weeks ago I finished Paulo Coelho's The Winner Stands Alone, and now I'm reading Agatha Christie's The Secret Adversary. It's the first time I read Christie, and I like it so far.

I am reading "The old man and the sea" by E. Hemingway. I like the book, however it's a bit difficult because of many new words.

Oh, your mom is a fellow Grisham fan! If she has a copy, I suggest you read "A time to kill", "Pelican Brief" and "The Firm". Those are my favorites. I like "Playing for Pizza" because I love sports and the story is different from what he usually writes.

I like Paulo Coelho. I haven't read that book though.

Hemingway uses big words for poetic reasons. But you'll learn a lot. Just Google the definition of words that you don't understand and you should be fine. :)

Well, since I've only read Playing for Pizza and Skipping Christmas I guess I can't judge. I loved the latter, by the way. If you say the former is different from his usual style, I guess I should give him another try ;-)
