I am eternally grateful... for my knack of finding in great books, some of them very funny books, reason enough to feel honored to be alive, no matter what else might be going on.

Chronicles of Narnia

This set of stories is world famous and much loved, with good reason. It is well-written with lots of adventure and good lessons. Interestingly, the order of the books is in dispute. Some people would argue to read the books in chronological order, meaning to read the books in the order that the events in the book actually happen. In that case, The Magician's Nephew should be read first, and The Horse and His Boy third, after The Lion.... I have listed them here in the order that they were published, and I would suggest they be read in that order. Reading Nephew after being introduced to Narnia is cool because it allows you to learn the backstory after you already know the place, which makes your "visits" there even more special. The events in Horse take place far in Narnia's past and have nothing to do with the children, so it can be read at any time without messing up your understanding of their adventures.
