Books: The Catcher in the Rye
J.D. Salinger's book, The Catcher in the Rye, was the first book that I had to read at The Tatnall School and I've been reading it ever since. The story of Holden Caulfield being kicked out of prep school and wandering around New York was my first real introduction to the preppy life and style. I love reading it over and over again every summer and I always keep a copy in my briefcase just in case I have some downtime. It is my favorite book of all time and it also doesn't hurt that it may have been based on Salinger's time at Ursinus College (my alma mater).
