Colbert Explains J.D. Salinger, Tries To Read 'Catcher In The Rye'

Based on some reviews of the new documentary "Salinger," we recommend skipping out and watching Stephen Colbert's Book Club devoted to the legendary author instead.

Check out Colbert's "Better Know a Salinger" segment from last night's episode, which concludes with Stephen reading -- or attempting to read -- "The Catcher in the Rye" in its entirety.
