I guess it's been about seventeen years since I first moved to Ashland and the Blue Dragon was one of my first "finds". The owner is nice, kind of quiet, just as a good book store owner ought to be. He has a good book "trading" system and regularly gives cash for books which has saved us from going hungry a few times over the years (nothing like an English degree from SOSC and a few years of unemployment to keep a girl humble, but I digress.) You can find some great old books here (and new releases too) while you listen to jazz in the background. The only thing I can think of that is lacking at Blue is a store cat.
