Books and dragons: they just go together. For one thing, many of us were first drawn into the world of books through fairytales or fantasy stories with dragons lurking at the edges of the pages. They symbolize an epic story, one completely unlike our world, where fire can rain down on you if you displease the wrong creature. Dragons mean adventure, timeless stories, narratives with a sweeping scale! Also, readers are bookworms, wyrms are dragons, and therefore a lot of people like to call themselves book dragons.
If you, too, dream of being a dragon guarding your book hoard, you’ll want to start collecting these bookish dragon decorations and accessories.
