Yes, get well soon Wildlx. The best place to recover is with a blanket on a sofa with a TV/DVD remote in hand, a full bookcase nearby, a faithful dog keeping you company (preferably a self -walking dog but you can't have everything), suitable ingredients for hot toddies and plenty of drugs. :console: :smooch:

Thanks y'all with the exception of Elaine ;-). I seem to be having a cold but with low fevers (flu?), which hasn't improved much since the weekend.

#49. The Black Path by Asa Larsson : 3stars
The third in the series. She continues to be good with characters and in creating atmosphere. However, there are two many POV and a too ambitious thriller-like plot made me lost interest along the way.

#50. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood : 4+stars
Margaret Atwood is a brilliant writer. This book is 25 years old but the dystopian future society it depicts, the Republic of Gilead, in the former USA, seems more and more to be a distinct possibility.

I made it :dance:!
