Want to play? @LeahBergen @Chrissyreadit @LeahBergen @Graciouswarriorprincess

Chrissyreadit I‘m glad your sons will make it home! Are they both in Cali? My daughter is there too and this has been hard. It‘s so far away. 20h
tpixie @Chrissyreadit yes! Agree so far- esp for you! - and one is in LA and the other in San Diego, so they are not even by each other. 19h
Chrissyreadit @tpixie do you go visit? I‘m hoping I can visit in January. 19h

A Special St. Nicholas Day | Heidi Lee Jackson-Houck

Happy St Nick‘s Day!
Growing up we used to put our shoes out, and they would get filled with really big oranges and apples and a little bit of candy.
it was a tradition handed down from my mother‘s side of the family (Dutch). 🎅🏻🦌🎄

marleed So fun. I never experienced until I went to college and my dorm put their shoes out for treats from the alumni. 3d
tpixie @marleed that is a fun idea for college kids! What great alumni! 3d
marleed It was sweet and a great tradition that has been spoken of with great appreciation when I get together with former classmates. In fact, I saw a FB post from a classmate - and great writer - telling her many followers about this college tradition. 3d

Historical novel regarding leprosy & a leprosy hospital in Louisiana. There is still a leprosy hospital in Baton Rouge Louisiana. About 200 cases of leprosy still occur in the United States each year. ( Hansen‘s Disease)

Chrissyreadit Fascinating! I stacked the book. I always pictured leprosy colonies as places where people walked and limbs literally just fell off. 3d
tpixie @Chrissyreadit yes! It‘s really that they lose sensation of their limbs and so don‘t know when they‘re injured- kind of like a diabetic - and so that‘s why the limbs sometimes were removed- because of infection that was uncontrolled. 3d
tpixie @BethM me either! 3d
Chrissyreadit @tpixie I‘m afraid my thoughts always went to A Monty Python sketch 🤣 and honestly, I thought leprosy had been cured and eradicated- so this is fascinating. 3d
tpixie @Chrissyreadit I love Monty Pring! I thought leprosy was cured as well. I also did not know it was a United States thing! - I guess because I thought it was so old. 3d

Once Upon a Wardrobe | Patti Callahan
post image

It was delightful listening to master wordsmith & storyteller Patti Callahan Henry at her author event at Wheaton College. Once Upon A Wardrobe is a magical tale that will fill your heart. 🦁🧙‍♀️🚪
I‘m also visiting The Wade Center, doing a little Joy Davidman research, as well as CS Lewis & JRR Tolkien research.

Cathythoughts Great picture ❤️👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1mo
Desha That is so awesome that you got to meet her! I attended an author zoom where she talked about her book and she mentioned she‘d be at Wheaton! How exciting! 1mo
tpixie @CathyThoughts thanks 😊 @Desha it was great! I also learned about it at a zoom event with Douglas Gresham and David Downing. I decided then and there I was just going to take off work and go on a road trip by myself to the event and to see the reading room with all the cool manuscripts and books. I spent yesterday and will today in the reading room and I‘m sure I could spend at least one if not two or more days in it! 1mo
See All 6 Comments
Desha That sounds like a great zoom event! What a fun adventure to go check it out! I was wondering how I could get there from California! 😂 What is your favorite part of the reading room so far?! 1mo
tpixie @Desha I loved reading Joy Davidman‘s sonnets to CS LEWIS. Who knew? I didn‘t think I liked poetry. I also read The LeFay Fragment https://narnia.fandom.com/wiki/The_Lefay_Fragment 1mo
tpixie @Desha it would be a long drive!! I drove 12 hours from KANSAS. You could probably fly into Chicago and then take the train to Wheaton and surely they have Ubers there Or rent a car from Chicago. But that all gets a little more pricey. My hotel was 15 minutes away. 1mo

I thought of you two when I read this!

Chrissyreadit Did you like it? 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit Yes, it was interesting. it is a nonfiction book about CS Lewis & Narnia. The back has a glossary in about terms from each book in the Chronicle. It would have been fun to read that before I read each of the books. Wednesday I‘m driving to an author event at the Wade Center at Wheaton College that has manuscripts of CS Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and five other British authors. 2mo

The Last Battle | C. S. Lewis
post image

I loved seeing old friends in this book. I‘m supposed to be happy about the ending but I can‘t help it, I‘m sad. And like @kissmehardy said, why leave Susan on Earth? How could she turn her back on Narnia?
🦁 🧙‍♀️ 🚪

kissmehardy I want to believe she finds her way back, but I have yet to just write the fanfic myself! 2mo
readingjedi As a child I was so cross about how Lewis treated Susan but as an adult I'm cross about how he judged her. I also realised I'm Susan! 2mo
Chrissyreadit I agree! Every time I read it I‘m sad about Susan. 2mo
See All 18 Comments
tpixie @kissmehardy oh, please write it! 2mo
tpixie @readingjedi yes! Yes! Ha! Maybe that‘s it- why I‘m so upset! 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit yes, she lost her way (edited) 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit I don‘t think it could‘ve been Peter because he was high king and Edmund redeemed himself after betraying everyone earlier in TLTW&TW, so it really couldn‘t be him; and Lucy was always a believer. So I could see if it was anyone it would be Susan, but I really don‘t think any of the high kings or queens should‘ve lost their way… ❤️‍🩹💔❤️‍🩹 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit @kissmehardy look what I found re: Susan. at the end there‘s a mention of a podcast regarding it as well. https://www.narniaweb.com/2021/08/what-c-s-lewis-said-about-susans-fate-in-the-l... 2mo
Chrissyreadit Woah!!! I‘m going to listen while I fold laundry tonight. I‘m so glad we had this discussion because it has really bothered me, although I still love the books. To me it is similar to how I feel about Watership Down- I love it but the author is blatantly sexist. And he wrote it for his daughters…. 2mo
kissmehardy If I may also recommend my library's podcast episode in which we discussed The Problem of Susan: https://www.podbean.com/ew/pb-x45f4-10e2af5 2mo
tpixie @kissmehardy thanks! 2mo
Chrissyreadit I listened to it and had so many thoughts!! I‘m going to listen to your podcast today @kissmehardy - it turns out this bothered my 8 year old self so much I still hold on to it! 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit @kissmehardy this is my theory- well the 1st part I heard, and then part I combined with my thoughts. Susan turned her back on Narnia/Aslan. But that wasn‘t the end of her life at the end of The Last Battle. She lived on. ✨ I think she lived on long enough to return to Aslan /Narnia. Just like CS Lewis turned his back on religion for a while until J.R.R. Tolkien helped him regain it. (edited) 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit @kissmehardy and another parallel is the dedication to Lucy at the beginning of the lion the witch and the wardrobe. http://www.quotenik.com/c-s-lewis-dedication-lion-witch-and-the-wardrobe/ 2mo
Chrissyreadit I agree. I think when he started the books he was writing without the full purpose of being allegorical but by the Last Battle was, and chose Susan to be “worldly” and lose her way. It is interesting to me that He never had anyone “grow up and get married” either. They all remained single- including Polly and Digory. 2mo
kissmehardy I'm with you both! I still wish he had given us an adult Susan spinoff. 2mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit yes! He kept them young and unmarried! @kissmehardy a spin-off would be great! 2mo

What do you suggest??

I decided to read these in publication order as I did as a child. Along the way I decided that may be it is best to read them in chronological order instead. I‘m debating with the exception of this book. I‘m wondering if it doesn‘t have more impact on me after having read all but The Last Battle. So maybe I‘d recommend reading them in chronological order except for this one - to be read right before The Last Battle.

It‘s time to revisit Narnia. As a traditionalist, I‘m going to read the books in published order. Then I will read/ review them in the new order. I want to be ready to read Patti Callahan‘s Once Upon A Wardrobe!

1. Autumn for the changing leaves although I love Spring with green grass and the flowers/ bulbs thar pop up
2. Decorating the house for Fall and cuddling under the blankets while reading.
3. The Korea library when it had ( still has?) the Mike Stillkey sculpture- check him on IG

Deja Dead, Volume 1 | Kathy Reichs

1. Sometimes I can guess at least part of the twist, but rarely all
2. Reich‘s Temperance Brennon, Patterson‘s Alex Cross,& I get frustrated the dysfunction, but Cornwell‘s Scarpetta
3. Tropes: none-well, my IRL book club tends to read WW2 books about ordinary people doing extraordinary things & I like those.
4. My family.Also, today my grandson starts Kindergarten & my granddaughter starts Preschool.( hope they stay safe)

A great, short history of Notre Dame- built on the site of a Roman Temple to Jupiter. Notre Dame was the 5th church built on that site.

All proceeds of this book go towards the restoration of Our Lady. 💖 ⛪️ 💖
