[Sticky] Getting to Know You!
@dawntreader, glad you posted in this thread! We are really happy to have you here on the forum.
sadly, the only other country I've been to was Canada when I visited Niagara Falls
Surely this was a worthwhile trip. I mean, it's Canada! ♥ Just kidding. (I am a Canadian and proud of it. ) Seriously, I hope you can visit other countries when the world opens up again.

Name (please avoid your real full name): Lindsay
King or Queen of Narnia (guy or girl): King
Family (single/married/kids): Single
How you learned about NarniaWeb: I was doing some online research on LWW and can across some insightful comments -
How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: I read – probably the first 4 – when I was 9. I didn’t make it all the way through.
How many times have you read the Chronicles: Recently – I have read and reread them…uhm…a lot.
Favorite of the Chronicles: I find HB to be the most amazing - a tour de force. But I like LWW because it contains elements of all the others.
Hobbies and/or interesting things about you:
I attended a Lewis conference back in 2019 near where I live (Philadelphia). I heard some of the top scholars talk about the Narniad – I was impressed by how active a field of study it is. I picked up LWW and Discarded Image, and Planet Narnia – to see what I thought as an adult reader. I got hooked and have been on a journey of study ever since – not only reading Lewis and Lewisiana - but trying to read books AROUND Lewis – books he may have thought important – everything from classics, patristics, lit crit etc. It has been a daunting task – but not in any sense “work”: a calling. Lewis wrote these books to communicate – not just to children but also to adults.
Aside from that - I'm just a guy trying to make his way in a crazy world. Honestly - if God had not brought this thought journey into my life the last two years - viruses, politics, crime - would have been unbearable. Thank God.
You are very welcome here! You have already shown us that you are going to be a great contributor!
There, shining in the sunrise, larger than they had seen him before, shaking his mane (for it had apparently grown again) stood Aslan himself.
