Read a classic - always a good choice

The Catcher in the RyeI read The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger.  You may be asking "shouldn't you have read this in high school?" And the answer is "well, yes, but I never finished it."

Please don't tell Ms. Hoisington, my high school English teacher.

I made it about half way through the book in high school, but this time, I read it all the way through.

What can I really say?  It's Catcher.  If you haven't read it in a long time, it may be time for you to pick it up again.  If you've never read it, I recommend reading it at least once.  However, if you're younger than high school age, please ask your parents first as this book continues to be on the banned book list.  Even though this book debuted almost 60 years ago, it is still incredibly relevant today.
