  2. I'm not sure exactly how many of his books I've read. I can tell you the one's that have made an impact on me, or the one's I currently have on my bookshelf, all of which I have read (list bellow). But, especially when I was younger, I would go to libraries and check out any Lewis book I could find. I imagine I've read almost all of the books he's published (and a lot of them I've read multiple times), at least in part. I think he was the most logical and creative Christian who's lived in modern times. Which is saying a lot because those two qualities are nearly at odds with one another aren't they? I think he had the right ideas, or at least he went about Christianity the right way and he did it will a certain eloquence that I've never seen matched. I suppose I love his writing for the same reasons anyone loves any author: I feel as though we have something in common.

    1. Thank you for replying :)
      I too have read a lot of C.S. Lewis books but I've never known anyone to be as fond of him as you are, I can totally understand the fascination with his works and not just because I love words and a good book haha !

      Yeah I agree with you, he definitely sets a very good example for everyone not just Christians, it is wonderful, I just wish I had more time to read his books.
