    I think Catcher in the Rye is very overrated. I read it and didn't see what the fuss was about. Actually, I kind of wanted to punch the guy.

    I voted for 1984 but I also wanted to vote for Sirens of Titan.

    That is why I voted for it. I want to discuss that. It is definitely not among the books I love, and I was going to see what and why people feel.

    Oh. Well then. I could probably get behind that... actually, I'd probably end up typing a page-long rant. I get wound up about things I don't like.

    well, actually you can't officially start reading till midnight... but of course you can!

    So, ladies and gentlemen, I am happy to announce our next book -

    The Catcher in the Rye

    The discussion starts on June 1st; till then, everybody has the time to read or reread it.

    If you can think of good questions, PM them to razz or to me (Ves, our former President, is understandably busy now... so I arbitrarily appointed razz, who hasn't confirmed it yet; since I haven't heard from him to the contrary, though, I hope he accepted). Till June 1st, the previous book (Bradbury) is still on... maybe we'll still be able to do it justice.

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
