Always a good idea to go back and re-read old favourites.

Kibby has started reading them. She had read the Harper Hall books. Now she is wants to read them all and is bugging me to find Dragon's Dawn. I know we have it. I think it is in the shed.

I have three huge boxes all set to go to the used book store. There are so many books I don't read any more and I need to make room on the book shelves. Nothing that is signed is going, but a lot of others will be.

You need to start her with the two originals, Dragonflight and Dragonquest, if you haven't already.

As it should be. It's always good to know your roots.

QUOTE=Draco;179255]As it should be. It's always good to know your roots.[/QUOTE] Yes, I read them, and then others, I've open something else, has been 'well dusted' too

I open more than I planned on Audio Media today, the two by Ann and eann on the cats books, also combind two or three today, I was feeling like a shellperson, with a crossed softshell view point.

Also my 'feeling' was right this meeting did go kinda like I espected it
