I turned 47 this week, and have officially been a reader for more than forty years. In honor of getting so ridiculously old, I decided to start a new blog to take a retrospective look at the books that have been important to me over the last forty years. It will be more or less an essay blog, discussing the intertwining of my life with the books that I have read. I am not sure how frequently I will post, but my general plan is to try to post one essay a week, and to finish the blog by my fiftieth birthday, at which point I hope to be able to print it and turn it into a sort of a reading memoir.
Anyone who is interested can find the blog here: http://www.fortyyearsofbooks.wordpress.com.
