Chronicles of Narnia

Our local library is sponsoring a special showing of the new movie The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe this Saturday morning. Tickets are $4, and the theater is offering a special deal on popcorn and soda. It sounds like it will be a very successful event - only a few tickets left.

Cory and I will be going. Jeffrey and Beth didn't think they wanted to go, so we are leaving them home. I don't know if it's because they're really not interested in the movie or if it's just that hard to get up early on a Saturday morning. I'm really looking forward to the movie. I remember reading all the Chronicles of Narnia books when I was younger. I even bought the boxed set when Beth & Cory were young thinking I would read them all over again, and get the kids to read them too. However, I have this habit of rarely reading any books I own. Why? Because I can always read my books, but there are so many books from the library that I only have a short time to read. So I read the library books first, and don't get to my books. Then I check more books out of the library, and so on. I did, however, read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe a couple of weeks ago - just to prepare for seeing the movie. I figure after the movie I will want to read the rest of the series.
