Interesting list! Thank you for sharing.

Stephen said...

Michener's titles are all huge, so I can't blame you for not tackling them with a review. I haven't yet worked up the courage to try reading one of them!

Sarah @ Hamlets & Hyperspace said...

Looks like we have quite a bit in common as far as history goes! I don't think I've read any of these soI'll have to check a few of them out. I'm sorry if this comment posts twice, one looks like it disappeared.

I see you also had no problem coming up with a list, ahahaha. How'd you find Foundation to be? I've heard it's a dense read and I'm intimidated ��

Lectrice Vorace said...

Nicely done.
Here is my Top Ten Tuesday list this week.

Jawahir said...

Great List!

Greg said...

I've never read James Michener, but growing up I always thought his books looked interesting. I did read the first Anne McCaffrey Pern book, or most of it- not sure why I never continued...

Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse said...

I haven't read any of these authors, so it's nice to hear you enjoyed these books.

Stephen, it takes time and effort, but they're worth it.

P M Prescott said...

Glad you enjoy history too, Sarah

P M Prescott said...

Emily it's not that dense, lots of action.
