If you can believe it, it's time for the SIXTH annual Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge.
I look forward to this reading challenge every year. I know many of you feel the same in that if it wasn't arranged on the calendar you might not get back to these books. For me, Narnia is an important enough series for me to want to read at least one title every year. Now that my kids are old enough to track with the stories and engage with them, I'm making sure that they are included in this. I'd love for them to have a reading heritage which is chalk full of Narnia.
Admittedly, we did read ahead and we already have one book under our belt. We'll talk about that in a separate post. But for now, let's get down to the dirty details of how this challenge works, shall we?
First, this challenge lasts for the entirety of July. You have one entire month to revel in the individual stories in The Chronicles of Narnia. You can watch the movies (if you can stomach them), listen to audio books/dramatizations, or read books about Narnia or C.S. Lewis. I give you full permission (should you need it from me).
As you proceed through this challenge, write up various posts about what you have read, sharing your thoughts and impressions of the stories. On Friday, July 31st we will conclude the challenge and, at that time, I will invite you to share your posts with us.
If you are participating in this, please leave a comment below stating as much, and then feel free to add my Reading Challenge badge to your own post or blog sidebar with the following code:
