I am reading Paulo Coelho's Veronika Decides to Die, so far so good. I read the Alchemist a couple of months ago, just happened to walk by it at the bookstore and picked it up to check it out. I don't know if it was something I was meant to read, at the time I was going through a few things, this book felt like it was written for me and really opened my eyes to alot of things. So since his first book was a hit I decided to try this one, the lady at the checkout said it was her fav, she read it in one day. I also picked up his other book, The Pilgrimage, its was a journey he took that helped him write the Alchemist.
