Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge

July 1 - 30, 2010

Carrie of Reading to Know is hosting the second annual Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge. Carrie writes:

I invite you all to join me on a summer vacation into the world of Narnia. The idea is to spend as much time as you can in this magical land created by C.S. Lewis. I absolutely adore this series (so much that both of our children are named after Lewis in a form or fashion) and delight in sharing the journey it with others.

There are seven books in the The Chronicles of Narnia series and for the purposes of this challenge, I invite you to read at least one, or perhaps all of them, along with me during the month of July.
To participate, do any of the following:
  1. Read (or re-read) the The Chronicles of Narnia books.
  2. Read adapted stories of Narnia aloud with your children.
  3. Make a family movie night out of the challenge and watch any of the film adaptations (cartoons or live action) that you'd like as a family.
Carrie will have a post up on her blog (which will include a Narnia giveaway) on Thursday, July 1st. Come and commit yourself to the challenge on that date and enter to win a Narnia Prize Package. She's asking that participants write up an introductory post of their own, telling us how long you plan on traveling through Narnia and what particularly strikes your fancy about any of C.S. Lewis' characters from this series and link that up to the introductory post.

The challenge will conclude on Friday, July 30th. Look for a closing post on Carrie's blog. You are invited to link up all the blog posts that you have written up over the course of the month during the Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge. If you blogged about a particular character from the series, or a book, a movie, a song, or whatever - go and link it up!
