30 Day Book Challenge: Day 23- Book you tell people you’ve read, but haven’t

I have tried to read this before! Really! But I literally got 1 page into this, and then quit. I hated it that much. I realize this is considered a “classic”, and that I eventually should read it because it is a key part of literature. But for now, I say pass. I only tell people that I have read this because I am embarrassed to say that I haven’t!

  1. You should read Salinger’s short stories and then you may feel better about the loathing, self-depricating main character, Holden, in Catcher in the Rye. I adore this book, but I’ve read all of Salinger and it took me some time to really let go and let Holden Caulfield talk like an idiot, a witty idiot for that many pages. : )

  2. I’ve done that: The Great Gatsby is the book I’m ashamed I’ve never read. Especially because it was assigned to me in high school and I had to fake it!

    The Catcher in the Rye is definitely worth a second shot though, it’s on my re-read list… give it a chapter before you make up your mind. It’s a favorite of so many historical figures (good and bad), a book that influential must have some hidden jewels, right?
