30 Days of Books: Reading it thrice is just as nice

Day 2: A book that you've read more than three times

Although I've read every book in The Chronic(what)cles of Narnia more than three times, except for The Last Battle, my favorite is The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Influenced by Lewis's love of tales of the journeys of knights, Voyage takes Edmund, Lucy, Caspian and Eustace, among others, on a journey to several different islands to find the seven lost Lords of Narnia. Crazy hijinks ensue and we get to spend time with my all time favorite Narnian- Reepicheep. Small, fiesty and fiercely loyal, Reepicheep is just the best. On an unrelated note, let's pretend that the most recent movie version of this does not exist.

PS- Was anyone else bummed when they realized that they were too old to go to Narnia? Or that they would never get a letter from Hogwarts? I totally was/am.

  1. Okay, first of all even though I wasn't able to get into Narnia when I was a kid I'm definitely going to reread it soon, because I don't think Andy Samberg will get out of my head until I do.

    And I was sooooooooo bummed when I realized that I was too old to live in the Wrinkle in Time books! My daughter, however, totally thinks Hogwarts is real and I'm not going to tell her any differently right now because hearing about her dreams every morning is just too damned funny.
