I picked up a copy of The Golden Compass this week and I started reading it last night. I’m very enamored with the idea of reading children’s books of this type right now — maybe that’s because they capture the imagination better then anything else.
I probably don’t really have time to read it right now, but I want to read it in case I actually get a chance to see the movie next month. There’s also a lot of chatter against these books in Christian circles right now. I have some opinions that will likely be forthcoming about all that, but I figured I wanted to have actually engaged with at least the first book before commenting on it all.
