Me and old Holden Caulfield

I first read The Catcher in the Rye when I was in my teens, and thought it pretty cool to find one of the characters sharing my name: Jane Gallagher. Quite an important character too.

Since I set up a Google alert though, I am CONSTANTLY being reminded of it. You wouldn't believe how many people on the Internet have written about Holden and herself!

Jane Gallagher: The Catcher in the Rye
I still think it's pretty cool. And it's certainly helped by the fact that it's a great (and important) book.

Are you in a book?

I'm so jealous! I KNEW your name was familiar but didn't make the connection which is terrible since I've been re-reading that book for 30 years now! By the way, thank you for the really sweet post!
