    Tumnus’s bookshelf

    In The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Lucy enters a magic wardrobe and goes through it into the land of Narnia. There she meets a faun named Tumnus and is invited to his home for tea. In his house is a shelf filled with books and we are told the names of four of them: Is Man a Myth?, Men, Monks, and Gamekeepers: A Study in Popular Legend, The Life and Letters of Silenus, and Nymphs and Their Ways. Have you ever wondered what the names of some of the other books might be? I never have but I found this site, Into the wardrobe , which suggests possible titles and I am listing some of them below. (If you have never read The Chronicles of Narnia this list won’t make any sense but if you have you will probably enjoy it.)

    This list is hilarious. These books even sound like they would be fun to read. Thanks for posting it, I'm never going to be able to watch the movie without looking at the titles of the books now. It would be really fun to work on a set and make fake books with ridiculous titles would be really awesome.
