Weird, but I feel like a book prophet today. On the day that J.D. Salinger died, I made a predication right here on this very blog, boz'n girls, that Salinger's novel, The Catcher in the Rye, would bolt to the number one spot on Amazon.com. Bada-bing, there it is.
Of course, Salinger's lone novel has been a best-seller since 1951 (having sold more than 60 million copies worldwide). That's something of a miracle, that one book, written by twenty-year old who became a recluse for the rest of his life, could have netted more than a million dollars a year for nearly fifty years. Sufferin-succotash!
So, if you've not read The Cather in the Rye, but you would like to make a contribution to the J.D. Salinger family estate, go out a buy your copy today! Or better yet, order it on Amazon.com. It's number one! And I'm a book prophet.
