We ended up at a comic book store of all places! Surrounded by inappropriate scary things for a ten year old! They had a small shelf of used books. As soon as I saw the book, my heart just dropped. You see my mom passed away a couple of years ago. She is the reason why I read so much. Some of her favorite authors were Stephan King, and Anne McCaffrey. There on the shelf was a pristine paperback copy of Dragonsdawn. The same book that I would shift through when I was young and try to read, but was too young to get it. Next to it were two other Anne McCaffrey's, All the Weyrs of Pern and The Skies of Pern. I snatched all three of them up! I can't begin to tell you the memories these books have brought back to me and how happy I am to have found them. Next I am going to have to find some of the Clan of the Cave Bear!
