Welcome to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. Every day in April (except Sundays), I’ll be sharing a short bookish memory with you.
I’ve lived in Colorado, USA for most of my life. The state is overcrowded, but as far as places to live go, it’s an excellent one. It’s usually sunny, even when there are several feet of snow on the ground. Compared to other states, it’s (mostly) safe and (somewhat) clean. You’re never far from the wilderness here.
Growing up in Colorado has influenced what I read. The Southwestern US is rich in folklore and has a long, strange history. Living in the "Wild West" is what sparked my interest in ghost stories. Spending time in nature has given me an appreciation for survival stories and books about plants and animals. Big cities have always felt foreign to me. In fiction and in real life, I like silence and room to breathe.
Here are some pictures I’ve taken while exploring Colorado over the years:
Does where you live influence your taste in books?
