Reading order [from Wikipedia]

Fans of the series often have strong opinions over the order in which the books should be read. The issue revolves around the placement of The Magician’s Nephew and The Horse and His Boy in the series. Both are set significantly earlier in the story of Narnia than their publication order and fall somewhat outside the main story arc connecting the others. The reading order of the other five books is not disputed.
