The Catcher in the Rye

This is one of my favorite books of all-time because I find the main character, Holden Caulfield, to be incredibly intriguing.
The book starts out in Holden's usual cynical tone as he sets the reader up for a tale about a few days of his life as a sixteen-year-old expelled from a prep school he didn't want to go to anyway: "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them..... I'm not going to tell you my whole goddam autobiography or anything. I'll just tell you about this madman stuff that happened to me around last Christmas just before I got pretty run-down and had to come out here and take it easy."
Left out back on the picnic table by the little pond.
This is my first wild release in the state of Delaware. We at BC in DC (Crrcookie and I) were on our way to a BookCrossing meetup in PA and I requested we stop by Delaware so I could wild release something there. This was an easy spot to find once we followed the little brown signs.
