October 2015
Catcher In The Rye by JD SallingerJust started working through a Top 200 books referenced on Reddit post (I'd read about 50 of them and this was the highest rated one I hadn't read). I'm glad I've read it (one of the classics off the list) but I didn't get all that much from it. Maybe if I'd read it younger or (I say this all the time) if I'd read it before books by Bukowski or Jack Kerouac it would have been more memorable, but when I finished this book I was just glad I could get onto the next one. Meh.
