Each year, Carrie over at Reading to Know hosts a month-long Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge. The rules are simple and generous: read any Narnia books or books about Narnia or C.S. Lewis that you like. The arrival of this challenge resurrected some old feelings of guilt in me, as I haven’t read The Chronicles of Narnia, since I was 9 years old and sick with the flu for a month – they became my best friends then. I also have never read anything about Narnia, or anything else by C.S. Lewis. Maybe this month will be chance to remedy that.
At the very least, I hope to read The Chronicles of Narnia “series proper.” We’ll see what I get to after that. This might also serve as my excuse to collect the series in a nicer edition, than my old paperback treasury edition…not that I ever wait for a legitimate excuse to buy books. So hopefully over the next month there should be a handful of Narnia reviews. I may even watch The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, the only one of the movies I actually enjoy.
What are the rest of you reading this month?
