The Michener Challenge Sign Up

I have been a fan of James A. Michener ever since reading Chesapeake in high school.  I have many of his books, but I never seem to get around to reading them.  They are usually quite long so it can be a daunting task.  Consequently, I decided to start a Michener challenge! This will be a perpetual challenge, meaning no time constraints.  Feel free to join whenever it suits your fancy.  The challenge will officially start on January 1, 2010, but feel free to start sooner if you so choose.  I am including a Mr. Linky for sign up and I will post another Mr. Linky starting after January 1st for you to post your reviews and/or reflections.  Also, I have provided a list of all Michener's works in the post prior to this (check in the blog archive list for easy access).  I hope you enjoy the challenge!

Happy Reading!

Michelle

    1. The Covenant is listed in the List of Works page (link at top of blog) under Fiction. I do not have it in the montage of covers in the right sidebar. I need to add it.

  5. I ,too, have loved Michner since I read Hawaii in 1968. I don't have a blog and am new to all this. May I still join?

    1. Of course you can! Just stop by here and leave comments when you've read a Michener book. Which one and what you thought. Thanks for your interest!

  6. I found a Michener book left at a campsite at Lake Lanier in Georgia back in 1990/91. The book was Chesapeake. I have been a Michener fan ever since.

    1. Chesapeake was the first I read when I was in high school almost 30 years ago. Wonderful book!

  7. Yes, Isn't Chesapeake a wonderful story. I love anything about colonial Virginia and/or Maryland. I also loved Texas and most recently Space which had been on my shelf for YEARS!! Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center are now on my bucket list! Mary 2/20/2015
