It's really too bad that so much crumby stuff is a lot of fun sometimes. -J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye, Chapter 9
Today the whole world remembers J.D. Salinger and his famous protagonist, Holden Caulfield. I've probably read The Catcher in the Rye through during at least 3 different times in my life. I remember it always resonating in a slightly different way. I think I might be due for another reading.
Which cover do you have? I have the solid red in the top right photo... I think it originally belonged to my dad, and it is totally beat up (read: well-loved) just like the one shown here. Do you have a favorite? See a complete archive of covers here.
