Reading more books is one of my 2016 resolutions, but I admit, aside from the Harry Potter books, fantasy isn’t really my genre of choice. I like mysteries, adventures, and pretty much anything written by R.L. Stine. (Spooky!)
But tomorrow is Appreciate a Dragon Day and so I thought it might be kind of fun to read a book with a dragon in it—since, you know, I don’t have a pet dragon or anything. (Do you?!)
I was doing an internet search when I stumbled on ERAGON, which is, of course a popular dragon story. It’s about a young boy named Eragon who finds a polished stone in the forest. He thinks it will buy his family food for the winter. Instead, it brings Eragon a DRAGON HATCHLING! Uh…that’s kind of awesome.
But you know what’s even MORE awesome? Eragon was written by a 15-year-old kid! That’s just a few years older than me! The book sold to a publisher (a BIG publisher) and now Christopher Paolini (the author) has an entire series of dragon books. Talk about serious inspiration. I sure hope I like Eragon!
What are you reading? Will you be appreciating any (fictional) dragons tomorrow?
Gotta jet! Have a great weekend!
