Have your reading choices changed over the years? Or pretty much stayed the same? (And yes, from childhood to adulthood we usually read different things, but some people stick to basically the same kind of book their entire lives, so…)
My reading choices have definitely changed–I’ve made myself do so. As I’ve mentioned, left to my own devices, I will happily drown myself in speculative fiction. And, of course, there’s nothing wrong with that. But as a writer, a reader, and a critic, I feel it’s more beneficial for me to read widely, so I make sure my reading diet is nice and varied.
And of course, my reading choices have changed more naturally since I was little. While I loved to read, I didn’t read much in middle school, and what I did read was usually something that had a fanbase–Anne McCaffrey comes to mind. I was very character-driven rather than plot-driven. (I was the kind of wee lass who would be inconsolable if a favorite character died, even if they no longer served a purpose or the plot. I have since gotten over that.) I’m very glad I’ve matured and changed over the years.
