Lewis points. I remember at my vast old age in 7th grade sadly concluding that I was too old for the Narnia books now. I had already read them many times.

The first series I read to myself, starting halfway through when I switched from listening to my mom read them aloud, to sneaking them off to my room to read ahead.
