10.3 Here, There Be Dragons: January 16th is Appreciate a Dragon Day. Read a book that features a dragon, has the word "dragon" in the title/subtitle/series title (plurals, possessives, or compound words containing "dragon" work, too), or that has a picture of a dragon on the cover.
Examples: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Dragonflight, Eragon (Inheritance, #1) by Christopher Paolini
This list might help, too: Dragons

Christine US (christineus) | 572 comments The Aisling Grey guardian series has a male lead that is a dragon in human form (so says the book description)...does that count?

You Slay Me (Aisling Grey Guardian, #1) by Katie MacAlister

(plus the cover has a little dragon head on it)

Judy | 831 comments I got My Sparkling Misfortune (The Lakeland Knight) by Laura Lond free for my Kindle. I think the green guy on the left looks like a dragon, but wanted to check to make sure.

Thank You!

That not-so-little green guy on the left definitely looks like a dragon ;-).

Sorry, Elizabeth, I haven't read any of the books in this series and I can't tell from the GRs description whether it will work or not.

Are there any SRC members who have read A Clash of Kings and can tell us if there are dragons in it? Speak up, please ;-)....

There are dragons in the 2nd book, but they aren't prominent - a part of one of the subplots. I've only read the first two, so can't be sure, but I'm guessing they're going to be more important later in the series.

No problem--I can't imagine that I would get past the second one in the next few months--I'm listening to them while I walk in the mornings and they take me forever. If I finish the second, I'll find another place to put it.
