My sister owned Lion and Prince Caspian so I read them first (so I started written order, at least). Forgotten which one I read next; however my mum got me a box set of all the books, and from then on I have read them in chronological order each time.

I think it dose not matter what order you read them, like the bible you can read any chapter and the message is still the same. You can read the books in any order you like but it helps to read them if you want to follow Peter and co and a time line in the chronolegial order.

Once you have read all the books, it doesn't matter in which order you re-read them, I agree. However, if you have never read them (nor seen the movies), I think it is critical to start with LWW so that you encounter Aslan in the same way that the children did, with no idea who he is -- if you read MN first, then you already know who Aslan is, and you don't get the delicious feeling of hearing his name for the first time and wondering why it makes you feel so good, as the children did ... It's a wonderful beginning for all the adventures.
