Reading them again

I haven't read the Chronicles of Narnia in years and I thought it was high time to enjoy them again. I asked for the all-in-one volume for my birthday last year, but hadn't started reading it yet until a few weeks ago. In the past, I've read them in the order in which they were released, but this volume is in "chronological order" as the events unfold in Narnia. I'm up to the third book which is A Horse and His Boy.

I'm sure that I've read these books at least twice through in the past, but I'm surprised at how much of the details I had completely forgotten. Everything is familiar to me, but I can't remember how the different storylines will come together in the end. I still really enjoy C. S. Lewis' humor sprinkled through out.

Thanks, my next project! I just started to re-read the Outlander series. It is one of my favorites.

I', sorry to hear you've been "spammed". Hope you get it fixed up soon!

It is one of the most beautifully breath-taking things in all of literature when Aslan sings Narnia into being in the first book.

I read the series to my children when they were younger. It's probably time I read them again.

I'd read all the Narnia books a couple of years ago in the lead up to a C.S. Lewis conference. It was fantastic to read them all in succession. Enjoy!
