Clive Staples Lewis (29 November 1898 – 22 November 1963) 

my first C. S. Lewis book at the costly sum of $.95

My introduction to C. S. Lewis was like most people – through “the wardrobe” and into the wintry land of Narnia.  The above book is in pieces not just because it is a cheap paper back copy.  Its frequent use tells a tale of readers in our household (first me as a boy, then our children) who have drunk the Lewis cool aide.

 

Long since then I moved on to other things Lewis wrote, but I will always remember holding this book open, eyes open just as wide, trailing his words like a kid behind Hamelin’s Piper.


what is your favorite Lewis book?

…or quote?

for more interesting verbage about Lewis read Fred Sanders’ birthday tribute to him
