(Newser) – JD Salinger fans, rejoice. Or cringe in horror, more likely. For a mere $1 million, you can buy the late author's toilet on eBay, reports the Raleigh News and Observer. The commode was used by Salinger at his home in Cornish, NH, where he spent more than 50 years living just as privately as he could. We're sure he'd be thrilled with this auction.

Despite the hefty price tag, memorabilia dealer Rick Kohl says he's open to other offers. "I bet it's worth $100,000," he says. "Come on, it's JD Salinger's throne! We're talking Catcher in the Rye here!" Click here to make him an offer on eBay.
