“ The same good folk who would burn me for a psychal now paid me to use my cursed gramarye to guard their sheep. ”
“ You can't work in the library without going into the Old Levels," said Mirelle somberly. "At least some of the time. I wouldn't be keen on going to some parts of the Library, myself." Lirael listened, wondering what they were talking about. The Great Library of the Clayr was enormous, but she had never heard of the Old Levels. She knew the general layout well. The Library was shaped like a nautilus shell, a continuous tunnel that wound down into the mountain in an ever-tightening spiral. This m ...more ”

[close] Dragons travel throughout the world of books. Immersing themselves in as many books as possible. We read one book a month and at the end of each month we discuss the overall thoughts and reflections of each book. WHEN ADDING SUGGESTIONS: Please edit them so that they fall in the "to-read" and "book submissions" shelves!!! The books we read can be from any genre and any age group. A week before the next month, we vote on which book will be read. As a group of friends, this group is very laidback and casual. That being said, we do expect this to be a drama free book club. Most of all, have fun and enjoy reading. This is meant to be a stress free environment. If you feel as though the book we are reading is too much for you to handle, you should not feel obligated to finish it.
