I don't remember when I read all of the Dragon series. Maybe I was a teenager or in my 20s. I'm 61 now and am re-listening to them now via CD books. It brings me to tears to think of the dragons, especially the little ones. Many cultures have dragon tales or tales of fairies. I relate to the children Pern who grew up looking to see the little dragons even though the grown-ups. I do believe in fairies and hope to see them still. More children now are being born who are seeing angels, "for real". Maybe it's not too late for us...

As my 2 children are now adults and out of the house I find myself needing respite from the daily living and TV isn't It for me!!! I was pushed into reading by a friend who said "it's like reading a moving", without the commercials, and you can reread or stop WHEN YOU need to eat, answer the phone, door, etc. work or sleep! And when you work on a farm (as I was helping her with ‘birthing calves') work was ‘spontaneous’ so to speak! So watching TV even cable was usually half over, us coming in or not finished us for going out again! I found I liked reading and McCafferys’Dragon riders of Pern were my first. Her works were/are thought provoking. I'm absorbed in Anns'stories and then thinking past them on many ‘what ifs’. I have readand reread the majority of her books I own. I have been changing to hard-backs and loan out the paperbacks regularly. My only regret is I didn’t begin reading before, much younger. Though, I do like, not having to wait on the ‘next’ one in a series. I started at 41 and now at 52 have started my grandsons 8&9yrs on her books. They love to hear me read them and read better themselves for it.
Hindsight is a problem of many generations. I hope more paernts read to their children at an earily age... it helps with their attention span and thought processes, and well its wonderful family quiet time!
