One thought on “What I’m Reading”

  1. “Why Geography Matters” is a quick and fascinating read, while “Skytrain to Murder” is weaker than the other Dean Barret books I've read. But the main point is that CS Lewis is awesome.

    One tdaxp reader didn't believe that dancing girls appeared in A Horse and His Boy. In Prince Caspian, Lewis goes one better (pg 408)

    “”Oh, may I? Thank you, thank you,” said Gwendolen. Instantly she joined hands with two of the Maenads, who whirled her round in a merry dance and helped her take off some of the unnecessary and uncomfortable clothes that she was wearing.””
