happily brings you today’s post.
Obviously, D is for Dragon. Just look at the Dragon lurking in the letter.
Last week I mentioned that dragons were a theme of my 2011 reading. Dragons are a general theme in my reading. I like books about dragons. If I am reading a book and a dragon shows up, that raises the book in my estimation. For example, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone has dragon’s eggs AND dragons. This was a lovely surprise when I first read the books. I read Eragon because it had dragons. I’ve got a picture book that I’ve had for a long, long time called Sir Kevin of Devon which features a dragon. I’m pretty sure I liked the book because of the dragon. In the Narnia books, Eustace gets turned into a dragon in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. This is my favourite part of that book. (The movie ruined it entirely, bad theology, too much dragon.)
If I know a book has a dragon, I’m on it. I just finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. D is definitely for Dragon.
