“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.” – J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Heartless by Winter Renshaw – My obsession was born of innocence and good intentions, and it began the day I spotted a handwritten journal lying in the bushes. My plan was to return it the next day; safe and dry. But I kept it, and may the mistake of reading it.
