50 Books Real Simple Readers Love
The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis
I didn’t have a great home life growing up and I loved escaping into that world. It was a safe, magical place where wrongs
were made right, good prevailed over evil, and awkward children could become adventurers, warriors, even kings and queens.
I still read them today. —Hk Techau
I can’t remember NOT loving to read, but the Narnia series made me a verbivore. I found them on the bookshelves in our family room. A college student who lived with us had finished them, and I went through them at the age of 7. Eventually got my own set as a present and I still have it 40 years later. My son read them too. —Lisa Schulz
I cannot wait to introduce my 8-year-old daughter to the wonderful world behind those wardrobe doors! —Linda Lagergren
Still read them from time to time! —Shawnean Hobson
My dad read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to all four of us when we were children. We have all been hooked on books (and Narnia) ever since! —Becky Musgrave Greenwood
