The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, Week 1

Welcome to January's Online Book Club. This month, we're reading the The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.

The Online Book Club, if you've never joined us before, is a book discussion group that takes place entirely online. Each week, I write a new blog post that talks about different aspects of the book, and you can interact directly with me and other readers by leaving your comments. Check back each week and see what new topics we're talking about.

The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe is a story about four siblings who find a portal to another world called Narnia. The siblings must fight against an evil White Witch who is keeping Narnia frozen in a never-ending winter. The only hope is to band with Aslan, the Great Lion, but no one is sure if he is strong enough to fight against the White Witch's evil magic. 

If you want to follow along with us but you aren't interested in reading the book, you can always watch the 2005 movie version. Check out the trailer above if you want to get a feel for the movie. Feel free to still leave comments on the blog posts, even if you're only watching the movie and not reading the book.

Next week, we'll be reading the first six chapters, so make sure to read those before reading the blog post next week. I hope you'll check back for the blog post, and I can't wait to hear from you in the comments section.
