We study the Zipf plots describing the occurrence of different elements in a given group as a function of their rank. We define a "distance" between two Zipf plots characterizing the differences between the two groups. We apply the distance concept on groups of words contained in books. Our results suggest that the distance between books written by the same author is smaller than the distance between books written by different authors.
