Planning a short break soon from book blogging over the winter months, although there are some scheduled posts to go out – reviews & blog tour dates. During my break, I’m going to catch up with a massive TBR pile of books I’ve accrued during this year. I’ll probably still be around on social media, because only one thing is better than reading books – talking about them!

Meanwhile as a thank you to followers and friends (UK only) I’m offering a giveaway for this beautifully illustrated lovely collectors item book Dragonology The Complete Book of Dragons.

Description from Amazon

Said to originate from the library of eminent Victorian dragonologist Ernest Drake, this book imparts to readers the secrets of the ancient science of dragonology. It includes a host of novelties such as old letters, magic dust, dragon scales, gems, spells in envelopes and booklets of riddles.

Entry from Wikipedia

The series first launched in 2003 the United States and Canada by Candlewick Press and in the United Kingdom by Templar Publishing.[2] The publishers would eventually publish books with similar themes on the topics of wizardry, Egyptology, pirates, and monsters.[3]

In 2012 Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman announced that they intended to produce a film adaptation of the books.[4]

Dragonology: The Complete Book of Dragons is a 2003 fiction book written by Dugald Steer, and published by Templar Publishing in the United Kingdom, and by Candlewick Press in the United States.
