(Nine Innings, Nine Catchers – Books That Matter) #literature #photography #blogging #books

Two of the greatest books ever written. I’m still pushing off starting Franny and Zooey, although reading anything by Salinger is a magical moment in and of itself. With Spring nearly here I want to take that magic outdoors onto our high up patio and enjoy it with a leafy scenic nature vista. 🍃 📚

  1. Hi Eric

    Catcher is a true classic – got Franny and Z to read. The baseball book looks interesting even though I have bugger all idea about the intricacies of the game – its a niche sport in the UK -like American Football.
    Enjoy reading on your patio!
    Cheers

    1. Hey Steve! I’ve heard amazing things about Franny and Z, and supposedly there’s a follow up novel to that as well? Haha, it was a baseball analogy to Catcher in the Rye. Nine Stories is Salinger’s incredible collection of short stories, huge variety of themes and settings.

    Well, I was certainly caught out on the boundary (cricket analogy) by that one. I now reckon I have read Nine Stories -way, way back in the mists of time. Must find it out and re-read – it’s somewhere in the house. There is too much good stuff out there to read – we need several lifetimes.

    Cheers

    1. You’re absolutely right about that!! I love finishing a good book and diving right into another without thinking twice. It didn’t always used to be that way, but now it’s a literary addiction haha. What are some of your all-time favorite reads?

      1. Hi Eric
        Favourite authors – Updike, Roth, Martin Amis, Donna Tartt, Murakami – and I always read a load of history, literary reviews etc. I have been fortunate enough to have had Updike, Amis and Tartt sign books for me – it’s fun to talk to famous authors – if only for a few minutes. So specific books – Updike (Couples; The Maples short stories; Marry Me – and of course the Rabbit tetralogy), Roth (so many, like Updike, to choose from), Amis (Money- is his classic), Donna Tartt – (Secret History) – Donna is so lovely in person – from Mississippi.
        Murakami – Norwegian Wood – having been to Tokyo I can get a sense of the place in the book – as with Couples (a fictional Ipswich MA – I like the town – nice to wander around and see where he lived – not that he is revered there because he used Ipswich as a base for partner swapping and scandal – based characters on some of the dwellers) I have written poems on Ipswich and Updike.
        And you?
        Cheers
        Steve
