    As in title, respond with your favourite books with dragons as main or almost main characters.

    Not quite main characters (and more a force of nature), but I'd recommend Marie Brennan's A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent.

    Christopher Paolini's Inheritance series (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, and Inheritance) is alright.

    J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. Full stop.

    Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern is a great series. Easy reads, and very nice to see the dragons portrayed as helpful benefactors.

    The Dragons of Requiem book franchise by Daniel Arenson (not exactly dragons per-se but people that can transform into dragons)

    There's a lot of Requiem books, I only have the first trilogy and a couple books from the following one (there's several trilogies, each is set at a different point in the timeline so they can all be read out of order without missing anything)

    Yep gotta think and look. I hope there is a way. Mainly because history of dragons sounds great for me, and i always loved humans transforming into dragons. Most hyped for this two books haha

    Naomi Novik's Temeraire series is great. It's a bit wordy, as it takes a lot of stylistic inspiration from classic literature, but a wonderful story with great characters and a cool alternate history timeline of the Napoleonic wars.

    The "Age of Fire" series by E.E. Knight is a good read, been meaning to reread it actually :)

    My first published work fits your criteria. I am close, agonizingly close, to getting a paperback edition out. It will have a little bit more information, and feel a little more polished, than the admittedly early e-book submission. Books two and three are in the works.

    Edit: I have paperbacks. See this: Paperbacks are in, The Accidental Ambassador!

    Please take a look. Just know that the plot shifts by chapter five.

    Well what I'm writing has a plot that makes less sense than Texas Chainsaw Massicer and I'm planning on the main character "fight" a dragon, it's more of a running away spamming spells. The dragon will be sorta important for the end. So wait like 4 years when I actually finish it.

    The Dragon and the George by Gordon R. Dickson is an amusing read.

    I remember running across a YA series called Dragons in our Midst, by Bryan Davis. Only read through the first book but it was okay.

    And I remember seeing the description for a book called Tooth and Claw, by Jo Walton, where the setting was basically everyday Victorian Europe but replace all the humans with dragons.

    George R.R. Martin's A Song Of Fire and Ice series (better known by the HBO series Game of Thrones) is a phenomenal and realistic series.

    The first two books were good but it kinda dwindled out from there in my opinion. Still, OP, I'd say give it a shot.

    I don't know if it's been mentioned, but the Inheritance Cycle is almost entirely surrounding dragons, and I rather enjoyed it

    Dragonworld by Byron Priess is my all time favorite dragon book. It's also full of amazing pencil illustrations.
