Catch 22

by Joseph Heller, 1961

I was not able to continue reading this book after the first chapter or so. Something turned me off so badly, I threw it away. (I had picked it up for free from a garage sale.) However, it is a Pulitzer Prize winner and classic, so maybe I need to give it another try? 

Catch Me If You Can

by Frank Abagnale, 2000
