I've read it before, but it's been a while. I may have to go buy another copy, though.

I'm in. I somehow managed to escape high school, college, and secondary English teaching certification without ever reading the thing.

I think I must've given my old copy to charity, as I couldn't find it. I bought a new copy at Barnes & Noble today, so I'm going to start reading it ASAP. Interestingly, they changed the cover to mimic the dust jacket on the original 1950's version of the book! How trad is that? ;)

Topsider - I was in the same boat...I tore apart my attic, my parent's attic, and any nook or cranny my old copy could have been hiding with no luck.

Alas, I had to purchase a new copy yesterday - but went with the industrial version:

I started reading it last night. I had forgotton how amazing the dialogue is in this book...like spoken word, weird punctuation and all. Very easy to read, and remarkably contemporary even after fifty years.
