Since my last post, my family has battled an outbreak of the flu and another case of “walking” pneumonia.  Thankfully, I escaped this latest scourge, but being a nursemaid to my sick loved ones definitely took it out of me, though reading helped me calm my frayed nerves.  Surprisingly, it was a focus on some past favorites which helped me get me out of a long reading slump, so this week I’m continuing this old school binge with a late 80s trilogy I’ve never finished.
