  1. Must read all of them! Thanks for sharing. BTW, I find it interesting how many of them compare themselves to “Catcher in the Rye” (one of my personal favorites), a book written in 1951. Now that’s staying power.

    • Oh “Catcher in the Rye” is so fantastic. That must be why I am so drawn to these books. I found that interesting too…I wonder if that’s the new generational trend?

  2. Good morning, Bree:

    In re: what kind of reader are you?

    I have friends that jump to the final scene, also. Personally, I could never understand how someone can do that, when the magic of reading, for me, is being transported to another place and time. I want to feel the adrenaline, the action, the happiness and the sadness of the MC as she/he conquers her/his quest.
