Ok, I finished both the Cronicles of Narnia and the Chronicles fo Prydain in just two weeks. What a great bunch of books. It's funny, the ones from the series that I liked least as a kid are my favorites now. I guess you have to have some perspective even to enjoy kids' books to their fullest.
I think I'll have to re-read "Stuart Little" for my next venture into kids' lit.
Right now I'm reading "Survival" (first book of the Species Imperative series) by Julie E. Czerneda. Next up is "A Game of Thrones" on recommendation from the folks here.
