Begin the Week with Words

Reading Catcher in the Rye with my students and liked this quote (even though Holden is something of a pain in the butt).

"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."     The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger


  1. I wish this a lot too, especially with books that make me think. I want to call the author and pick their brain about how they did it.

    1. Although the ones I'd want to know the most would also be the ones who might scare me to get inside their heads! Lol
