Is this sentence grammatically correct: “I thought you might find it an interesting read”

Is this sentence grammatically correct?

“I thought you might find it an interesting read”

If not, what would be a better way to word it? I thought of

“I thought you might find it interesting to read”

but since I’m referring to a non-fiction book it doesn’t sound right, however, the former sentence sounds a little off too.

Answer

Both sentences are valid. In the first, “read” means the same as “book” (or “magazine”, “article”, etc.). To improve clarity, you could say “I thought you might find it interesting.” (“To read” is implied, since that’s what one would typically do with a book.) You could also say “I thought you might find this book interesting,” but I don’t really see anything wrong with “I thought you might find it an interesting read.”
