The Harper Hall trilogy, set within science fiction legend Anne McCaffrey’s beloved and bestselling Dragonriders of Pern series, is a seminal work and a must-have for any fantasy or science fiction fan.

ok these books were awesome but why are they not made into nook books like the rest of the series. Seriously???!!!
These are great books! Why are they not Nook Books? Every other one of the Pern books are Nook Books!
Love all of the Pern books. Have them all in book form, but the print is so small that I can't read them anymore. I have started to put my favs. on my Nook and would love to have this on the Nook as well. My favorites are The White Dragon, The Skys of Pern, and All the Weirs of Pern. Also really like the Chrystal Singer series, The Dinasaur Planet books. If they would put The Harper Hall series in nook format I would get those also.
