Sadly my knowledge of 80s songs is very limited. So I will not be able to sing along. I could play the tambourine?

Yeah, I can see what you mean by your limited 80's songs. The tambourine is so 1960's, Carol. ;)

I could sell them (for real!) at Café Press if I thought anyone would buy them.

I like them! You sure nobody would mistake the t-shirt for a prison uniform with my ID number? ;)

That so rocks! I would buy one if I wasn't broke and in debt.

I've always hated the new order. I like the old ways best.
When my little brother started reading CoN, I supervised to be sure he read them the right way.

My favorite order is a slight variation of the published order: 245-3617.

Why? Because Lewis essentially finished the books in that order and because HHB is the pivotal book in Lewis's own experience of writing them.

Ooh, I wanta be a member too! I firmly believe that they should be read in the proper (that is to say originally published) order. My mother gave me a set thirty years ago, which I read so many times that now they are crumbling into dust. But when I got a nifty new hardback set I was shocked to see the state of affairs. (I commented on it here, by the way, but that was years ago.) Also, I was puzzled that the wolf in LWW seemed to have a different name. Anyway, I bore you all!

Great! I can accompany you on the baritone ukelele, which I just happen to own and know how to play respectably. :)

Yeah, it's the first three books that are the most important. It's how kids are introduced to Narnia. I'm going to be presumptuous as a new member and join this 2456317 club. I'd love a shirt! Probably 2 or 3!

OK, well, just for fun and because it's so easy on Café Press, I now have two shops up.

If you like the ones saying "Read them the way Jack wanted" go here:
http://www.cafepress.com/2456317

If you like the ones saying "Decently and in order" go here:
http://www.cafepress.com/2456317other

All proceeds go to the Get Momtoast Out of Debt fund. ;)

I was trying to work out which order was which url, but then I read the numbers on the URLs and realised they are BOTH publication order ones. Hmm, someone needs to get off the internet late at night. ;)

Heh, if someone wants to make shirts in honor of the other order, they can. But it's not gonna be me.
