Catcher in the Rye - Holden lives again.

I fixed this little book. I thought it deserved a few more years. It was printed in 1967. I've had it since 1997/8-ish. 
A wee bit of book glue and book tape, and hopefully, it might last another twenty years.
Back in 1997-8 I worked as a Shelter Shops manager. Books came in that were beyond selling. Some I felt sorry for or wanted to read, so rather than dump, I took home. 
This one, I wanted to reread, which I did in 1999 and then reread again, three weeks ago. 
I had repaired it with sellotape back then, which yellowed and came away. The repair this time was with book industry stuff, so hopefully it'll last until 2040 when I might revisit.
