Julia and I recently began a mother daughter book club. I let her pick the first "read" and I told her to challenge herself and I. Well, she has become interested in fantasy and a little bit of sci-fi so upon the approval of her dad he has consented to the Narnia Chronicles. Seems Tony had read the Screwtape Letters in college and he mentioned C S Lewis was a Christian studying Catholicism at one point. We are halfway thru the first book and although it isn't my cup of tea necessarily I am starting to get into the plot. Julia loves the time together as we cuddle up and I read aloud the chapters and she listens or last night she read to me as my throat is sore and I was not up to par. Sometimes the baby is still awake so he sits in between us and travels with us to Narnia!


  1. Now- which book are you reading? Are you going by order of publication or chronological order? It's kind of like Star Wars that way, when we were little, it started with The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, but some sets are in chron order instead of pub order. :) I did a senior seminar at UT on CS Lewis. Very interesting.Karen

  2. Right now we are reading The Magician's Nephew and then Lion, Witch and Wardrobe next... She wants to see the movies too!
