    A lenghty book

    Hello,

    What do you recommend for one to use in the following sentence:

    "The book is good but a little bit lengthy and wordy, to suit me."

    "The book is good but a little bit lengthy and wordy, for my taste."

    "The book is good but a little bit lengthy and wordy, to be right up my alley/street."

    Thank you very much.

    Re: A lenghty book

    All three would be grammatical if you removed the commas. The third is unnatural. I prefer the second over the first but they're both OK.
