The Challenge (put simply): Read two books by J.R.R. Tolkien and two books by C.S. Lewis.
Reasons for joining:
1. I'm tired of being put to shame by my 10-year-old daughter. Annie has read The Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and The Silmarillion by Tolkien, as well as the all the Narnia books. I have read none of these.
2. These books are so cherished by so many that I would be a fool not to get them read eventually, right?
My list (though finishing all of these is probably wishful thinking on my part):
*The Fellowship of the Ring
*The Two Towers
*The Return of the King
*The Magician's Nephew
*The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
*The Horse and His Boy
*The Voyage of the 'Dawn Treader'
*The Silver Chair
*The Last Battle
Wow...this may be a "mini-challenge" to most, but for me it qualifies as the full-fledged deal!
