#greatfulreads #day3 #over500pages I read all 910 pages of this Michener monster, and it was worth it😄

Kdgordon88 This is a favorite! Great choice! 2w
ljuliel In my Top Ten ...first 100 pages are a slog, but after that, it‘s terrific. 2w
Lynnsoprano @ljuliel I think that‘s true for most of Michener‘s books. The only one I really wasn‘t crazy about was Alaska. 2w

ljuliel @lynnsoprano The only 2 of his I‘ve read so far are the one mentioned here and Chesapeake. Both very good. I want to tackle TEXAS sometime, but I‘ll have to be in the right mood. I‘ve started it before and it‘s very good. Just wasn‘t a good time to stick with it. (edited) 2w
Blaire I need to read some Michener, I remember both my parents loving his books when I was a child. 2w
quirkyreader This one is on the TBR list. The copy I have is falling apart to due to its age. Time for some rubber bands. 2w
Crazeedi The first Michener I read was this one, in 6th grade, and it was probably 900 pages too 2w

This book reminded me why I never did the textbook readings in college.

Took a quick break from this, but I'm back at it.

Suet624 Wow. Where is this? 8mo
GeekGrl82 @Suet624 North Colorado Springs. My mom and I were coming out if a brewery after seeing Captain Marvel. Sadly the picture can't come close to doing the view justice. 8mo
Suet624 Oh! I‘ve been there! It‘s beautiful. 8mo

"The Rockies are therefore very young and should never be thought of as ancient. They are still in the process of building and eroding, and no one today can calculate what they will look like ten million years from now. They have the extravagant beauty of youth, the allure of adolescence, and they are mountains to be loved."

Listening to this book on audio and I can't believe how engaging it is! Don't be deterred by its length. It's fabulous!

Most likely, one of Michener's novels. I like both, don't think I can choose. Coffee with cream. Favorite teas are Earl Grey and Constant Comment. Read best in my comfy recliner in the family room. I have loved reading since my mom took me to the library after the last day of school of first grade. I got my first library card, checked out the maximum--3 books--read them all as soon as we got home and cried when I couldn't go back for more.

I used to #travel to Colorado every year for work until the new management killed that particular program. #sizzlinsummerbooks

CocoReads That's a bummer. I went for my first time last year and I would love to go back! 2y
Susanita @CocoReads I really miss going there. 🙁 2y

#FunFridayPhoto - My very last assigned book in high school English was also my favorite - Centennial by James Michener. I thought it was a great choice for keeping everyone interested and engaged in the last couple of weeks before graduation. Mr. Green was the best!

manifestsanity Loved that book! 3y
[DELETED] 2232195534 Now that's a book! Michener was very long winded, but the research he did...wow. Read this one a long time ago. Nice pick! 3y

At 1038 pages, Centennial will definitely qualify for the longest book in my TBR for BOTNS Summer Book Bingo! Plus, I've lived in Colorado for 12 years now - I'm looking forward to learning more of the history!

Victoria_C I read that as a teen in my "Michener period". 3y
Anovelobsession I had to read this as a senior in high school. I remember absolutely loving it. 3y
MrBook Nice! Beautiful!!! 3y
