Just Another Story About a Girl and Her Dragons

Menolly doesn't just love to play music -- she's really good at it. But on her world, only men are allowed to be musicians. Menolly's not good at things that are "women's work," but she's way better at playing the harp than most men. She hardly ever got to play, and at the beginning of the book, even that was taken away from her and she was forbidden from ever playing music again. Ever. I don't know about you, but I wasn't at all surprised when she ran away. I was surprised at what she found, though...Dragons!

Dragons who might, believe it or not, be able to save their world when their natural talents and Menolly's join forces. Check out Dragonsong to find out the rest of the story. If you like audiobooks, it's ready for you to check out in our OneClickDigital selection. I've been listening to books on their Android app (they have one for iOS and computers, too). You can check out up to ten at a time, and even renew them if you don't finish them within three weeks. Also, if you like this book, it's only one of Anne McCaffery's many books set on Pern. I wish I could go back and read them all again for the first time, so it's my pleasure to introduce them to you, Faithful Blog Reader.

Happy reading,
