My Personal Literary Canon
Throughout the years my taste in literature has taken some turns. My earliest experiences with reading novels were centered on science fiction and fantasy. I think the movie Star Wars had a profound effect on my imagination as well as my desire to experience the writings of various authors. I also read the “Lord of the Rings” series by J.R.R Tolkien as a young lad of about nine or ten years old, and although some of the writing was a bit complex for me at that age, I completed the trilogy nevertheless through sheer perseverance.
