Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge 2011 Conclusion

Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge


I'm genuinely sad it's over. All this month I was thinking to myself, "Why do I spend so much time reading books that fail to move me HALF as much as these do!?" I almost feel like I'm wasting reading time. I know I'm not, but I'm tempted to believe so all the same.

I've loved my trek back in to Narnia and I'll keep hosting this year after year because I need the "permission", if you will, to spend a month just resting here - and learning.

I hope you've had some fun, quality time in Narnia yourself. As always, I want to go and check in on everyone's thoughts. So, if you've posted about Narnia, please leave a link in the comment section below. Leave links to all of your posts so that we don't miss anything!

Here's the deal: I'm going to take a summer blogging break which will last all of next week (August 1 - 7) and when I "come back" I'll have a detailed post with all of your links in it to make it easy for you to peruse and hop around to see what others had to say this month.

So, leave links, enjoy the first week of August (the beginning of the end of summer?!) and I'll see ya back here soon!

Thanks so much for hosting this, Carrie! I had wanted to get back to Narnia "some day" and I am so glad this challenge spurred me to do so!

I finished and discussed another book I had started during the challenge: The Way Into Narnia: A Reader's Guide by Peter Schakel:

Thank you so much for hosting this challenge and finally getting me into Narnia!! I've really enjoyed it! I even gave one of my nephews a copy of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe in hopes of getting him into Narnia. :)

I'm finally wrapped up!

Wrap Up Post (and review of The Most Reluctant Convert)

The bulk of my time was spent in The Horse and His Boy and I wrote the following regarding that book:

Groping for Another Land

Appointed Times and Places

What You Meant

Thanks again for hosting this challenge--I always enjoy the annual (partial) reprieve from new books to revisit these old favorites.
