My participation is going to be a little different than I originally planned this year. Last year, as I read the books, I kept this uncomfortable feeling. I honestly thought I had worked through all that, but apparently I haven't. I think more than anything I tried to ignore it. I started reading The Silver Chair, and I'm still uncomfortable. Best I remember, it pretty much started with Prince Caspian last year. I don't completely understand why I'm uncomfortable, but there's no sense forcing it. Through my reading I'm constantly learning what types of books I like/don't like, books that I'm uncomfortable with, and books that I need/don't need to read. My reading has drastically changed since I started blogging. It has both greatly widened and narrowed in different aspects.
Since I did think I'd worked through it, I had been greatly anticipating this challenge. I've picked up several Narnia related books after last year's challenge, but since I no longer need/want them, there's no sense in me hanging on to them. I know they would make one of you very happy. Just to make sure no one misunderstands me, I'm not saying this series is wrong!
Stay tuned to the end for the giveaway!
I am still going to participate this year, just a little different than what I originally planned. Here's what I hope to read:
C. S. Lewis, My Godfather: Letters, Photos and Recollections by Laurence Harwood
The Magician's Book: A Skeptic's Adventures in Narnia by Laura Miller
I'm curious about this one. I almost ordered it last year during my reading. I finally ordered it a few days ago, but hopefully it won't take too long to get here.
Now for the GIVEAWAY! Just because I'm all weird doesn't mean these books don't deserve a great new home. :)
Up for grabs?
(Some of my Narnia related books are simply going in storage for the moment, so these actually aren't all of them. Some of these are brand new, and some of them I picked up used at various thrift stores).
