Thoughts on a Balanced Reading “Diet”

Yesterday, I read a post on Reflections of a Book Addict about balancing your reading diet. I started to comment on it about six different times before realizing that I should probably just write my own post about it, or else risk writing a novel of a comment. Before I say anything else, I’ll have…

The Chronicles of Narnia, Book 7: The Last Battle

I have officially finished my Narnia challenge! I really have to say again that I really don’t know what I was thinking about a decade ago when I didn’t want to read these. The Last Battle begins with Shift, an Ape, and Puzzle, a Donkey. When they discover a lion’s skin in the pool near…

Shasta, the son of a poor Calormene fisherman, one day overhears his father, Arsheesh,…
