I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
And speaking of covers...
I usually don't care which particular edition of my fiction books I buy. Dragonsinger and Dragonsong may be the only exceptions. I loved these editions when I first checked them out from my public library, and I specifically looked for them in used bookstores. I hated all the other editions I saw - the fire-lizards looked so awkward and fly-like.
I need to reread these books sometime. And maybe finally read Dragondrums in full for the first time.
