For years afterward, I wanted to read the rest of the series, but aside from a few attempts, I didn't actually read the rest of them until my senior year in college when I took a class on CS Lewis.

Personally, I think the published order is the better way to read them - but it is harder to find sets in this order. As my professor for that CS Lew Full Review...
