Summer Reading–Can you recommend any dragon titles?

Are any of your old favorites about dragons?

I apologize for the delay of this post—I had a job interview yesterday, so there were things besides dragons on my mind. I’ll try to stick closer to schedule next week; regular posting is important to me!

Wednesday was the first day of summer, and I realized that I haven’t done nearly as much reading as I would like. I was refreshing my summer (and future) to-read list yesterday, and found a lot of ambitious goals there, from the classic unabridged Les Miserables to thousands and thousands of pages’ worth of adventure in Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series. I haven’t decided whether I should start by tackling these masterpieces for the first time or by revisiting shorter favorites, but what I do know is that I’ll be doing a lot of dragon reading to keep the dragons coming to Dragon Crossing.

I have a list of dragon-related books to reread, like the My Father’s Dragon books, The Hobbit, and Eragon, as well as ones I’ve never read, such as Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series. My list is growing, but it is still small, so I would love your suggestions.

What are your favorite books dealing with dragons, and what are some others that you wish hadn’t been written? Were there any children’s books that made you a fan of dragons, as there were for me, or did you learn to love them as a teen or an adult? I welcome your suggestions as I add Dragon Crossing fodder to my summer to-read list.

Just for fun, what are YOU reading this summer?
