I saw the obituary for J.D. Salinger in the newspaper this morning, and had a rather weird feeling, because I was just thinking earlier this week that
I want to read Catcher in the Rye. I've never read it and noticed it on my mom's bookshelf.
I watched a movie about a week ago called 'Youth in Revolt' and everything I saw on the internet about it always compares it and the novels it's
based on to Catcher in the Rye, which is why I was thinking I wanted to read that book. That, and 'Youth in Revolt' had a few themes I had thought
about a few months ago in an idea I had that I thought would make a great novel, so I wanted to see if Catcher was anything like my idea.
Though, for the sake of other writer's health, maybe I shouldn't think about reading any of their books anymore...!
