      "The Catcher in the Rye": Read "Catcher in the Rye" because Salinger gets you. He knows what it's like to want to save a world that may not necessarily appreciate what you have to offer. It's worth reading if you feel an earnest need to know you're not alone on this planet.

      J.D. Salinger, “Catcher in the Rye,” 1951 | E. Michael Mitchell, a 20th century illustrator turned computer animation turned CalArts professor, made this cover for Salinger who wanted only his name and the title on the book jacket — no other type.

    IL PRINCIPE by Niccolò Macchiavelli - The book was written in 1513 by italian philosopher and politician Macchiaveli . Many italians don't like it because it's hard to read in ancient italian (not latin), but if you read it in other languages you definitely love it.

    "Nine Stories" by J.D. Salinger

    In 1931 Sue Eakin, a white girl in Louisiana, saw a dusty, old book called "Twelve Years a Slave." She found a copy for herself a bit later - and spent 70 years rescuing it from obscurity and doggedly proving it was factual. "Her passion was history, getting the history out.” In 1968 she got it back into print. In 2007, at 88, she published an edition with maps and pictures. She wrote in the acknowledgments, “Now Solomon and I can rest.” Two years later, she died. A great story at the click.
