Eragon

Teens around the state voted for Eragon by Christopher Paolini as their favorite book last year. Voting for the Rhode Island Teen Book Award was held in January 2005 and from a list of about 20 books, this is the book that won. I never got to read this one when it was being considered for the list but I recently saw it on sale for 50% off at Barrington Books because the paperback was about to come out so I decided to buy it.

I haven't read very much of it so far but the main character, Eragon, found an egg which turned out to have a dragon in it! The egg hatches and now Eragon is faced with the prospect of taking care of his "pet" dragon!

The book is getting good so I better get back to reading!
