Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge 2015

Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge

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:

I really love the Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge and I hope that you will read along. If you need some inspiration check out some of my previous posts on the topic:

I hope you will consider joining in and I hope to hear from you if you do!

To Narnia and the North!

I've started The Narnian by Alan Jacobs. It's not really grabbing me yet, but I am still in the introduction, so I am trusting it will be more engaging shortly. I also have Live Like a Narnian in my Kindle app and might get to it if I have time before the end of the month.

It's been far too many years since I've read The Chronicles of Narnia, and I'm ashamed to admit I've never read anything else about it, or even by C.S. Lewis. Maybe this my chance to explore it better. This will be my first Narnia Challenge with you. Glad to aboard!

I still haven't read ALL the books in the Chronicles of Narnia series yet. :( I'm hoping to read at least a couple more this month. Lovin' this challenge!

Happy Day!
I love Narnia.

I hope to read at least one this July. Earlier in the year, I read The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian. So I'll probably start with Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

I'm really hoping to be able to participate in this one, but I can't guarantee that! I've been rereading one Narnia book per month so far this year. Between vacation and everything else, I don't know if I'll be able to squeeze in The Last Battle in July. I'm going to try my hardest, though!
