i had an overly active imagination while growing up and i still do today to a certain degree. as far as i could remember, i was fascinated by stories of ghosts, dwarfs, elves, fairies and the like and especially vampires - thanks to classic horror films and to our neighbor who would gather us kids every weekend and fascinate us with tales of supernatural creatures.
when i had the opportunity to read Dracula for the first time, i had an "encounter" with the Count when i checked out the novel at the university library. it was spooky and funny at the same time.
even now, i could not forget what took place that stormy afternoon. if you are curious about the details, check out my post HERE where you will find out more why this immortal classic is special to me.
