    The Chronicles Of Narnia

    I cannot put down that book! I am on the third story now. The author is such a good story teller. I love how comforting children's books are. They are simple and aren't as dramatic as novels.

    Still Read Them, and Still Have Mine.

    I'm a college professor, and sometimes I bring one to read while my students are taking their exams.  Some of them think I'm weird, but others say they're so glad I did, because now they don't feel funny about still liking them themselves.
