PSThe Master Harper of Pern is Just before Dragonflight, witho overlaping Dragonflight PS its has a few eextradragonriders in it, I recall listening to it on tape, and was fighting a time crunch for it was a inter-libary loan, going back tha that or next dayh, I was fighting when I ccould not sleep, had the player in a different room, so I layed on the floor and with my pillow and blakent listen to it, , I recal my mom wondering what I was doing, 'told herher I could sleep so I was listening to the bbook till I got sleepy and then going back to bed, but I finish the book, put it back., packed it, as ready to be packed,, and sleeped right there.. Note this was before I found out I had mental prmental problems, and I don't recall why I could't sleep, but that book. and I have a odd histor. Note I din't mean to wanter off topic here I shall move this later.



This is one of those odd ones., note I could still see but its one of those memoies that I rrecall more the interaction, how I was where I was

So I thought IShaired a few of them. this one has more to it so I shal have to come back and give you the bad part, first this is the good part.

I wasn't exactly reading any of the books at the time, but this memory is Pern-related and sticks with me.

I had just discovered Dragonflight as a young teenager (like 13, 14) and I was HOOKED on DROP! Just obsessed. I found Dragonquest easily enough, and desperately wanted The White Dragon to continue the series.

My Mom promised to take me to the used book store for a copy, but first, she made me work for it. I worked my butt off, doing extra chores for 2 weeks because I wanted this book so much. Honestly, for what would have been a couple of bucks at the bookstore, it was a bit much. But Mom taught me the value of working for what I wanted with that lesson, and it's something I've remembered and kept with me to this day.

I think Anne McCaffrey herself would have approved of my Mom's methods. Regardless, I still consider my old, used copy of The White Dragon one of the most "valuable" books in my whole home library.

I have a few but that one was the best one I ddo recall, sometimes I have a few s more but they are going to take longer to write up, I have a few related to Dragondaws which was the first unabridged one that I heard, but the Paper back is a is going to have to wait till I can tttwrite it up,up, Just a as a preview, book startedatVia my Sr. Class trip, and to me was part of a bigger story, also its where I saw dolphins for the first time llive, outside of DD and T. I have to see if I can find those for that would go with a idea for a project that I am working on.

PS thanks for the reminder I don't know if I still have that second hand book but Dragonquest, I pick up that one second hand too, and I well have to come back and post more about this. Many of Second hand finds are from a now gone book shop, which has a sstoryy of it own, which I shal have to might just share it if I can find a bit more background infomation, it was a new used trade one and crafts, and its has a few cco has a life story each time it changes into something new. Thanks for the reminder, don't know when I well get it written or not its a . bbut it might just help me in a different ew way.
