Books and kites: they just go together. For one, many of us were first drawn into the world of books through fairy tales or fantasy stories, with dragons lurking at the edge of the pages. They symbolize an epic story completely dissimilar to our world, in which fire can rain on you if the wrong creature displeases you. Dragons mean adventure, timeless stories, narratives on a wide scale! Also, readers are bookworms, wyrms are dragons, and that’s why a lot of people like to call themselves book dragons.
