009: Did we hate Catcher in the Rye the second time?

Since it’s just about back-to-school time, we wanted to pick a book that we were, uh, forced to read in high school. And because we like to torture ourselves, we picked one that we both hated!  Do we still hate it? Listen up, folks… it’s on.

Note: This episode was recorded in the Sound & Vision studio at LPL! This will be the new home for Book Squad Podcast and we want to give a huuuuuge shout out to Nick Carswell of AudioReader for getting the podcast launched and teaching us how to actually organize things. Thanks, Nick!
