Such is the case in my own life, I feel. From a childhood of fancy and a proclivity for all things paranormal, to my rebellious teen years reading postapocalyptic fiction, to my days as an art student reading biographies of enigmatic painters and sculptors, to my current life as a college English instructor and my penchant for literary fiction, classics, and comic books. Each step in my personal history reflects in my reading history. And what fun it is to look back and marvel at the changes.
One reader's history can encompass a universe of experience. Three cheers for the colorful past.
