"I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be." – Holden Caulfield

In grad school I got this beautiful #bannedbooks mug from @malloryd23. Here are the ones I own so far and my fave cover/stories behind them.
2) 1984 by #georgeorwell. I saw this cover in England and bought it instantly. I'm a sucker for pulp paperbacks, but occasionally a modern cover will draw me in. Penguin ©2013
3) #AnimalFarm by Orwell again. Plume ©1983
4) #TheCatcherintheRye by #jdsalinger. Not a dynamic cover--I bought this in an airport when I was 17. It utterly transformed me as it does to a lot of 17 year olds. Still, this copy has traveled so many places with me. Little Brown Books
5) #LadyChatterlysLover by #dhlawrence. I also got this one in England at #AladdinsCave in #Norwich. Penguin ©1960
6) #MadameBovary by #gustaveflaubert. This one was found at @mainstreetbooksminot. Signet Classics ©1964
7) #ToKillaMockingbird by #HarperLee. Popular Library ©1962 Cover photo by #CoburnJr

“When you're dead, they really fix you up. I hope to hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you're dead? Nobody.” #thecatcherintherye

If you had a million years to do it in, you couldn't rub out even half the "Fuck you" signs in the world. It's impossible. #thecatcherintherye #myfavouritenovel #holdencaulfield #banksyart
The Catcher in the Rye. (Scene: Protagonist here is talking about fiction book in general.) 'What really knocks me out is 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. This doesn't happen much, though.' ~~~ Extract from current reading, 'The Catcher in the Rye' by J.D.Salinger.

_______________

Don't we all feel the same with some stories, some authors? I, for sure, have wanted to become friends (Read: best friends) with authors, bloggers, photographer, painters (basically all popular forum of art). I guess, I should be friends with Holden (the main protagonist) here. 😊

I feel I'm too old to read this book. Though this novel had debut to cater adult audience, it soon went on to become a favorite read for teenagers. Wikipedia says that this book evokes expression related to teenage rebellion, identity crisis, loss of innocence and much more.

Anyways, the point is I hope to finish this book soon. It's been lying in my cupboard for some years now.

I hope this novel doesn't have 'The Fight club' situation (which I'm trying to finish since 2 years). I really am liking the first few pages of this book.

It's witty, cleverly written and evokes many inner thoughts that you usually experience when you interact with another person but can't actually tell them.

Now for the view, it's from apna sabka favorite Himachal.

In a time when money will not matter as much as it is today, I truly hope I can sit somewhere here and read.

Amen. 😉😉. #blog #himachalblog #himachalpradesh #sidhpur #traveller #travel #mountains #instagram #nature #roadtrip #Travelgram #explore #writersofinstragram #writing #Himalayas #travelblog #blog #traveldiary #traveling #travelwriting #travelstory #instatravel #himachaldiaries #dharamshala #himachalpictures #dharamshalalocal #book #thecatcherintherye #currentlyreading #nofilter
