    If you're dedicated to reading dragon books, this is deffinetly the series to go with. There are so many books, it's insane! Enough books in this series to keep me going for a while. The books are very well-written and have a great storyline. I'm constantly wondering what will happen next.

    Anne McCaffrey (1926-2011) was the first woman to win a Hugo Award for fiction, the first woman to win a Nebula Award, and the first author to hit the New York Times bestseller list with an SF title (The White Dragon). [http://www.tor.com/blogs/2011/11/anne-mccaffrey-in-remembrance] As a first time reader on this site - I'm shocked that this is the only place her work appears. Her Pern series converted me to the genre back in middle school and I highly recommend it for young readers!

    I was 33 years old and had hated reading all my life until someone gave me my first Dragons of Pern book to read. I'm 66 now and I have Ann McCaffrey's entire collection of the Dragonrider's of Pern. Every year I get them all out and read them one by one. I love reading now. I can't read enough and I am enamored by dragons so much so that I am now writing my own dragon novels. I even went back to college and got a degree in English Literature. I was saddened by the passing of this amazing and talented woman who inspired me to read as well as to write. Pern will always be a part of me.
