Sometimes I wonder if we don't lose something as we become "experts" in our genre.

************** I'll let you know when I become an expert. But a couple years back I spent a little time with literary theory and all that subtext stuff and my enjoyment has gone up considerably. I wouldn't say that it's had any negative impact on enjoying the story.

Beyond all the nerdy subtext stuff, my reading pleasure took a major jump when I discovered online forums and online bookstores. For years I read in a vacuum with no one to discuss books with, and my reading choices were determined by what was available in the small mall bookstores and the used bookstores.

So all in all, I'm happier than a pig in mud.
