Do you like to read sagas – the ones that span generations? The ones that take forever to read and no time at all?

On Sunday I flew to Seattle for a few days for work. On the plane I started Hawaii by James Michener. I had gotten up very early that morning, so slept more than read, but hey…

Now I’m working through it. I read it 40 years ago and liked it then. I’m enjoying it again, although I don’t think I’m as enthralled this time. I have a month to read it for my book club. I may need every bit of that month, too.

(Of course I have to finish The Blue Angel by Heinrich Mann, too. It’s a library book, so I didn’t take it with me. Now that I’m home again, I’ll pick it back up.)

    I rarely read sagas, but have been known to. I loved Michener’s The Source. It’s hard to find but worth the effort.

    I never read The Source. It’s certainly not something I’d try this year. Hawaii is more than enough in a year…
