At work yesterday afternoon, a friend and I got to talking about books. Favorites came up in conversation, and I was inspired to photograph my favorite book for today’s blog post!
I don’t know what it is about this book that I love so much. It seems to be the kind of story that you either love, or you hate. I’ll be honest and say that the reason I was drawn to read the book in the first place, is because it was banned in so many schools in the United States. I needed to know what all the fuss was about.
I’ve read The Catcher in the Rye countless times. Every time, I’m reminded just how much I love it. There’s something about its painful awkwardness that keeps me coming back. I know that it turns some people off, but I guess it makes me feel better about myself and my own awkwardness.
