Title: The Catcher in the Rye Author: J. D. Salinger Goodreads rating: 3.79 Details: Paperback, 240 pages, 134g, pub. 2010 Condition: Used - very good Price: RM22 (excluding postage charge) In stock: 1 book (🚩 RESERVED) Synopsis: The Catcher in Rye is the ultimate novel for disaffected youth, but it's relevant to all ages. The story is told by Holden Caulfield, a seventeen-year-old dropout who has just been kicked out of his fourth school. Throughout, Holden dissects the 'phony' aspects of society, and the 'phonies' themselves: the headmaster whose affability depends on the wealth of the parents, his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection. Lazy in style, full of slang and swear words, it's a novel whose interest and appeal comes from its observations rather than its plot intrigues (in conventional terms, there is hardly any plot at all). Salinger's style creates an effect of conversation, it is as though Holden is speaking to you personally, as though you too have seen through the pretences of the American Dream and are growing up unable to see the point of living in, or contributing to, the society around you. Written with the clarity of a boy leaving childhood, it deals with society, love, loss, and expectations without ever falling into the clutch of a cliche. #thesleepycatbookshop#tscjdsalinger#tscfiction#usedbooks#newbooks#usedbooksmalaysia#prelovedmalaysia#secondhandbooks#bukusecondhand#bukuterpakai#bukubaru#bukumurah#bukumalaysia#sayajualbuku#kedaibukuonline
Another little #habitatrestore book haul from today. We frequent the shop a bunch for salvage materials for various projects we're working on, and each time I can't help but browse the little bookstore in back for new stock 🙂 #secondhandbooks#cheapbooks#bookhaul
“Well, I must endure the presence of two or three caterpillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies. It seems that they are very beautiful. And if not the butterflies– and the caterpillars– who will call upon me? You will be far away. . . as for the large animals– I am not at all afraid of any of them. I have my claws.” And, naïvely, she showed her four thorns. Then she added: “Don’t linger like this. You have decided to go away. Now go!” For she did not want him to see her crying. She was such a proud flower. . . “ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince #thelittleprince#antoinedesaintexupery#caterpillars#flowers#secondhandbooks#jamesstreetsouth#hamilton#hamont

Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink. I just don’t know what to read! I’ve picked up The Valkyries by Paulo Coelho a couple of times now but it’s just not doing it for me. Meh. I’m thinking maybe Selected Letters from Charlotte Bronte might scratch that itch. Or maybe Midnight in Chernobyl. What do you think?
I've decided to part with 100 books. Don't be sad for me, readers, because I'll still have about 500 others. So far, I've put 93 in piles on my table. Stalled. The last 7 will require some hard choices... #bookstagram#reading#downsizing#purging#secondhandbooks#usedbooks#collection#collecting#londonontario
My place to rest & rummage nearly every Wednesday, in the waits between doctor appointments. It's not just the books that bring me here over & over ~ this spot is one of few places you can exist as a person & not a customer in Sydney. Somewhere you can spend 3 minutes or spend 3 hours in. Somewhere you can go just to sit or use the bathroom or get a drink of water. It's basic human compassion but it doesn't feel basic to me. There are places (closer to the hospital) that are almost hostile if your illness is too apparent, if you look exhausted, if you promise you'll buy something, you just need somewhere to sit & catch your breath for one minute. Fuck those places & their shitty coffee. . . *Yes, these books are for sale but I always feel like their price is the amount the shop would part with them for; they're just as happy for the books to remain as they are. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . @ampersandcafe #chronicpain#chronicillness#cafe#bookshop#library#readingspot#invisibleillness#ampersandcafe#bookstore#secondhandbooks#bookshelf#bookaesthetic#wherethetiredgirlsare#disabilityawareness#books#bookcommunity#bookstagram#aussiereaders
