“What really knocks me out is a book, when you're all done reading it, you wished the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.” Holden Caulfield, The Catcher in the Rye
This week the world lost an author many readers would like to have known as a friend: J.D. Salinger. Salinger was the author of the classic coming of age novel, Catcher in the Rye. Although the reclusive Salinger has not been seen in the public eye or published in decades, his literary presence was always with us thanks to his masterpiece, Catcher in the Rye. And so long as there are teenagers and adults who remember their teens, his literary influence will continue.
I'm a reader/commuter in the DC Metro Area. My daily commute to work provides me with ample time to do what I love most: read! Whether its chick lit, literature, memoirs or other non fiction you can always find me with a book.
