A forgettable book that one reads when stuck at a beach house on a rainy day. Although the word comes from the proper name "John Grisham" (modern writer), it now applies to any modern, easily-digestible, forgettable paperback book. Since the titles of such books are equally forgettable, it is easiest to refer to them simply as "a grisham".
BORED VACATIONER #1: Have you seen my grisham? I swear it was right here under the TV Guide crossword puzzles.
BORED VACATIONER #2: No, that was MY grisham. Your grisham is the one with the green cover.
BORED VACATIONER #3: Oh crap I guess I've been reading the wrong grisham for the past 2 hours.
