Description Without Place

Still trying.

How can you run when you know?

The Magician’s Nephew

I’ve never read the Chronicles of Narnia. I readThe Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe a few times growing up, and once as a college freshman. My sister used to reread the whole series every couple of years. I remember her eyes growing increasingly puffy and tear stained as she carried around dog eared copies of the later volumes. More friends than I can count have read and loved these books. So, this fall I’m going to read them all. I just finished The Magician’s Nephew. Reading a book in a single sitting still maintains a aura of magic so, it was an appropriate start. These books are easy and short, but my schedule is about to become overwhelming. We shall see how long it takes. 

I am not going to attempt anything resembling reviews of the Chronicles of Narnia on my Tumblr. That sounds crazy. But I am going to make an effort to drop a line and see what thoughts come to mind as I tread through the borrowed nostalgia of many dear friends formative literary experiences.
