Coincidentally, I was nearing the end of The Unbearable Lightness of Being when I had read that J.D. Salinger, an esteemed figure in literature, had passed away. I picked up my copy of The Catcher in the Rye and immediately started reading out of nostalgia. I figured it would be a good time to get to know Holden Caulfield once again at 26. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to count this book as February's, but I'm most likely going to treat this as a filler and pick up another book to count for this month. Because my initial goal is to tackle one book per month, it's unlikely that I'll try to up that number as the year progresses. The reason I've given myself such a low limit is to save myself from being lazy, and as a tool to gauge my 2010. I don't have a lot of time to begin with so I'd hate to disappoint myself if I was unable to live up to my own expectations. Sounds like I'm in a relationship with myself?
In the meantime I have more than enough books in my queue that I'm anticipating to start, while I'm also open to taking any suggestions, as always.
