unicorns and other matters

On my daily commute to SLC, I have been listening to the Chronicles of Narnia, and I am loving it. 
How is C.S. Lewis so erudite and so charming? 
I love the world he creates in this series.

And as Jacob works diligently on his engineering homework, I curl up next to him and read "The Last Unicorn."
It was recommended to me a awhile ago, and so I recently picked it up from the library. 
I'm only a few chapters in, but already intrigued. 

What the heck?! When did I become such a children's fantasy nut?
I've never really got into fantasy literature, even as a kid. I guess I have always been more of a realist?
But I have to admit that I find myself getting absorbed in this stuff. 
Shout out to me if you have any recommendations for my fantasy reading list!

I LOVE Chronicles of Narnia! I read all the books in 4 days when I was pregnant. C.S. Lewis is a genius.
