To be honest, most of the information is pretty dull. Every now and then, I find an article that intrigues me, and makes we want to know what other people think about the topic. This is what Random Thursday is all about.
NPR recently ran a piece by a professor who recommended taking Catcher in the Rye off the standard High School Reading List. She felt it was dated, and didn't really catch heart of the "coming of age" novel any longer. She proposed a list of possible titles (scroll down to see her proposed list) to replace Catcher in the Rye.
What do you think? Did you read Catcher in the Rye in high school? Was it the best thing you ever read, and did it touch your psyche? Or was it "Ho Hum, another stupid book on the list that doesn't relate to me at all..."
I'll be honest. I never read Catcher. I don't have an opinion. But I'd love to hear yours! Use the Comment link below to share your thoughts!
