The Catcher in the Rye was on the New York City Public Schools ban list in the 60s.  I bought a copy to find out why.  Once I got to "the word" I closed the book.  I never finished reading it.

Understood. I don't know how to break to Holden Caulfield that he isn't changing my life.

 :P

I guess someone must have liked it but it wasn't me!

Ow. I can imagine that as a rough read. The movie is visually stimulating, but quite a slow rambling storyline.

My sympathies.

I never gave up on a book until I tried to read The Life of Pi. My daughter and I were supposed to read it for a book club. I finally decided that life was too short to sit there and torture myself. I still went to the meeting; I just remained uncharacteristically quiet. LOL

Still trying to get through 'The Catcher In The Rye' to see what all the fuss is about.

Zzzzzzzzzzz...

Been at it for months. I last a page or two then something actually interesting happens in real life and it's back on the shelf.

I'm projecting a 2037 finish.

I'd love to know what the hell you're all talking about but I'll have to wait for my son's visit at Easter, then ask him to translate!!!  ha2ha

Same here basically.  I use ITunes, but just burn my CD's to it so that I can but them on my Ipod.  I think I have bought 3 songs total on ITunes.  I have to admit though, I'm a real dumbass when it comes to computers.  Everytime I try something new, I get some kind of virus that just destroys the PC.

I bought all three volumes as new releases back in the '90s and have successfully ripped each one onto my PC using Windows Media Player. Btw, $4 was a great deal.

I was able to rip it to MP3 using one program, but another wouldn't recognize the CD.

Dead Wake, by Erik Larson. A perfect introduction to the circumstances surrounding the sinking of the Lusitania for someone who doesn't want to get bogged down in extraneous detail.   :)


That sounds interesting. I'm currently reading The Great Gatsby. It's this year's Big Read selection for communities in our library system. I'm going to show the movie next month at the library and I'm thrilled that it's going to be the 1974 version with Robert Redford. It was just recently added to the movies we're licensed to show. Otherwise I would have been limited to the 2013 version.
