Man, am I a sucker for a reread. :)
Yesterday I was over at my SO and found his brother - who is a member of SFSA, btw - had the Melissa Scott "Silence Leigh" trilogy, which made a huge impact on me sometime in high school. A few years ago, I bought the middle book secondhand from Grant's shop.
So the Harry Turtledove has been interrupted (which is fine, because it's actually an omnibus of two books and I'd just started the second one late on Friday night [well, Saturday morning by that stage]).
Grant has said to me a couple of times, and recently, that he doesn't understand how someone can reread books. Well, sometimes it's a lack of access to new material (which Grant doesn't suffer from - I'll take photos sometime) and sometimes books, like music, need to be revisited to discover all the nuances. And sometimes, it's just a comfort read, liking eating chocolate. :)
