Crash Course: Catcher in the Rye

From my favorite:
“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.” 
― J.D. SalingerThe Catcher in the Rye


  1. Fantastic find. I notice you were able to play this video without the commercial beginning that is on the actual YouTube version. Can you tell me how you did that?

  2. Janet- I got the link from John Green... maybe that's why? Isn't it awesome :)


    part 2 is out. Don't miss it!
