The world lost an amazing, reclusive genius today.
Bookworms everywhere are in mourning today and the literary world has shed a tear.
R.I.P. J.D. Salinger
1919 - 2010
If you haven't read any of Mr. Salinger's stories or novel up until this point, there's no better time than the present. You won't regret it, he was easily one of my absolute favorite writers. Even though he was 91 at the time of his passing today, I couldn't help but tear up...he was truly a great American writer.
