“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”

― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

  1. Hmmm….interesting coming from Salinger. Not so sure I felt that way about him after Catcher in the Rye, but I did love the book when I was an angsty teen. And Franny and Zooey was great for when I was a bit older and didn’t understand my sister. 😉

    When I read a really great novel, I don’t necessarily want to meet the author so much as continue to live in the worlds they’ve created in my head.
