Catcher in the Rye.

J.D. Salinger, author of that classic American literary novel, passed away yesterday. I, like I suppose many others, have read his lone novel.

What struck me most about reading the Washington Post's article on the man, his life, and his works was this quote.

"Publishing is a terrible invasion of my privacy. I like to write. I love to write. But I write just for myself and my own pleasure."
Could Mr. Salinger have been one of the worlds first bloggers? It seems to me he certainly understood what writing is all about for most of us in the blogosphere.
