The Alchemist

I own this book. My dad bought for me for my birthday one year. It looks dreadfully boring, but I plan to read it someday soon. If you recommend it, perhaps I should give it a shot!

You could probably read the whole thing in like 2-3 hours, it's a quick read. Nothing you'd need to put off reading for any stretch of time...

Good book

It's a great book. I'll have to re-read it during this month. Thanks, Jeff, for posting this.

Damn! All that is available at the HarperCollins.com address is a teaser. It's not the whole book. (pout)

Well...

The post says it was available to read for free for one month. The post was from June 2008. So, you're nearly three years too late for this...
