  1. Centennial is SOOOO good...the 1978 mini series as well as the book. Check it out if you like the book, it definitely does it justice.

  2. Love this idea - I'm a huge Michener fan. Fact is, I've been hunting for the Kent State book for years and haven't gotten hold of it yet.

    One I didn't see on the list that's on my shelves is James A Michener's Writers Handbook (1992).

  5. I'm looking for one of his short stories, but don't remember the name. A different government came and took the men away, and in school a new teacher quickly charmed the children into thinking the way the new government wanted them to think. It's written from the perspective of a young boy

  9. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
