Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Of course the book I read most consistently throughout these years was the Bible, but its influence on me, though obviously great, was not directly literary. I never thought of it as a book at all: as far as I was concerned, it might well have been called 'The Bible Designed NOT to be Read as Literature'.
