What is this, mob rule?

Roger Sutton said...

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again.
When the beating of your heart echoes the beating of the drums,
there is a life about to start when tomorrow comes.

Hooray!

Sometimes the mob is right. Besides, we're not advocating Roger burn the books, merely rearrange them appropriately.

Thank you!

Chronological reading is a fine method for a second go round with them, but not for the initial discovery.

It's neat to read old reviews of what are now classics. "One can imagine that twenty, thirty years from now, grownups will be recalling the Narnia tales with the same nostalgic pleasure many people today feel for the E. Nesbit books." --Prophetic! Hmm, maybe not even prophetic enough-- need to add on a couple decades!

You are awesome! I hated the new numbering so much I pilfered tag sales for the old editions. I know chronology makes a twisted sort of sense, but The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is the hook and the anchor. Twere it not first, I don't know if I would have read the series with the same enthusiasm and wonder. Thanks again for being true to the books.

Wow, am I the only person who prefers the chronological order? Guess so.
