J.D. Salinger seems to be one of those people, where you either love him or hate him. At least I know there are many people who have very strong feelings against The Catcher in the Rye, which I thought was a brilliant book when I read it.
Needless to say I love Salinger, he fascinates me, and perhaps not surprisingly I adore his rather cynical and jaded characters. The emotional coldness that they often have, and their dysfunction in society and relating to other people really speaks
I always joke around with friend about what a book addict I am and how obcessed I am with books and reading, and he can't beleive how many books I read, and how many I have, so this is how completely crazy I am.
This weekend I am going up to my uncles cabin in the mountains, I am only going to be gone for a couple of days. I am living on Friday and comming home on Sunday and yet I will be taking with me 3 possibly 4 books. Haven't yet decided upon the 4th one.
