Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! I HATE how Collins numbered the Narnia books (and I
don't care if Lewis suggested the chronological order as I have heard
suggested). It makes NO SENSE to read The Magician' Nephew first. How can
you possibly get all the references if you haven't read the other books? You
totally miss out on the "ah!" moments. I feel very cross about this!
