“What is this?”

“That’s a book.”

“Well, I can see that, but whose book is it?”

“I don’t know. It was already here when I came.”

“Do you think that I can take it?”

“I think so. Nobody came and looked for it. Somebody probably forgot it on the bench.”

“OK, so I will take it and read it during the weekend.”

“OK, enjoy it. By the way, what is the book about? Is it some love story?”

“I don’t like love stories. It is a detective story. But I don’t know this author. I hope it will be good.”

Fingers crossed! Do you read only detective stories?”

“No, not really. I read everything except for love stories. I hate those!”

“I can see that… and do you read in the morning or in the evening?”

It doesn’t matter to me. When I start reading, I don’t stop reading until I finish the book.”

“Nice. Do you read every weekend?”

“No, I don’t. I only read when I find something.”
