Hawaii and Fiji are two of the best island groups in the world to visit as a vacationer. The great hotels, the fascinating LOCAL people, the exciting history of the two contrasting island groups, and the unmatched scenery make these two of the most enticing stopovers. -James Michener
#QuotsyOct19

(We have visited both and loved Fiji the best)

#OldCoolBooks #saga

Someday I would like to have an old cool edition of Hawaii by James Michener, definitely a saga and a chunkster, to go with my Hawaii-based books. The original cover is on the top left and some of the older paperback covers are along the bottom. My edition is on the top right and is from the 80s. It was picked up at a used bookstore to be a beach read when I first moved here.

Leftcoastzen Love seeing all these great covers! 1y
ReadZenRites I remember seeing the one on the bottom right-hand corner at my house at some point back before I enjoyed reading. I couldn‘t understand why anyone would choose to read such a thick book 😂 1y
merelybookish Fun collection of covers! 1y

Currently reading:

- Hawaii (James A. Michener) because we're planning a 2019 trip there
- Secrets of the Tudor Court: The Pleasure Palace (Kate Emerson) because it's been on the shelf for years (so far not so good)
- A Wrinkle in Time (Madeline L'Engle) because the movie is coming out soon!
- Bad Girls Throughout History (Ann Shen) because this world needs more girl power, and I've always loved a bad girl story!

My #livingaloha moment is quite simply the serenity that I experience on a daily basis due to a choice I make every morning. I'm so very grateful for each day I live and the irreplaceable moments that make up that day.
Thanks #DebinHawaii for this most gracious #giveaway! 👍💯

DebinHawaii It sounds like a wonderful way to start the day and out yourself in the mindset of living aloha. 🌺❤️Mahalo for entering! 2y

We are deciding on Hawaii for our winter vacation this year. What book set in Hawaii would you recommend I read before I go to get in the mood? Do you have a favorite read on the beach/by the pool rec? I have been to Oahu once a few years back, this time we will head for the big island.

JulAnna I don‘t know if it will help with your vacation pick, but Moloka‘i by Alan Brennert is a really interesting read! 😊 2y
Sapphire Thanks! I will check it out 🎃 2y
LauraBrook You should check out @DebinHawaii ‘s blog, I think she said she made a list that was posted on her site. 2y

Our last big family #vacation was a trip to Hawaii in 2015. This was my view each morning from our balcony, where I would sit and enjoy a cup of tea and my book. My daughter liked it so much she keeps asking when we can go back (she'll have to settle for Disney World next LOL)! This trip marked the second time I'd been to Hawaii, and it is definitely one of my favourite holiday destinations (super envious that @DebinHawaii gets to live there!)

Picking this back up. After a really great intro chapter, I kind of got turned off at the beginning of second section and set it down for a couple of months. I've now gotten back into the story and am really enjoying the writing. This is definitely an "in my wheelhouse" type of book- armchair traveling, history, culture, biography of a people.

Can't believe I still haven't read Michener's books. I bought them second hand ages ago.

Lynnsoprano Of those Michener books, Hawaii is the best, IMO, and best place to start. 3y
julesG @Lynnsoprano But if I start with the best, won't I be disappointed by the other ones? 3y
Betty @Lynnsoprano I was going to say the same thing! @julesG I haven't read Mexico or Caribbean which is why I'd say Hawaii 3y

Lynnsoprano @Betty @julesG I liked Caribbean but my husband hated it. I bailed on Mexico. Some of his books are more approachable than others, and I'd put Hawaii in that category. (edited) 3y
Reviewsbylola I've been curious about Michener. 3y
HannaPolkadots I've read both Poland and Chesapeake earlier this month and they left me wanting more Michener. Really a brilliant storyteller, his books are long, detailed and often span over centuries, but he manages to keep it interesting. Buying more next time I find anything by him ❤ 3y
julesG @HannaPolkadots I've read a lot of Edward Rutherfurd, which got boring after the fourth book. 3y

For me, #paradise is being next to a body of water (in this case the lake at my parent's cottage, where Ellie kept watch over my kayaking daughter last summer ). There is nothing more relaxing than reading by the lake 🛶🏝📚 #lyricalApril

TheKidUpstairs Yes! We moved to a small lake town three years ago. I can see the lake from the end of our driveway. It's amazing what looking at a lake can do for your state of mind. 3y

I want to go back 🌴🌴BUT just to visit. I lived on Oahu for five years and while I loved being on the island, five years was enough for me. But damn if I don't miss the weather and being able to drive anywhere and see the ocean! It's absolutely beautiful and honestly my kind of weather. Except for that one time it rained for 41 days straight 😳😂

syasutake I also lived in Hawaii for five years! My husband was born and raised there. 🌴🌺🌈 3y
TheNextBook @syasutake My son was born there! I went to college there, met my husband an eventually left. It was harder after having my son because all of my family is on the mainland. But as a college student it was perfect! Five amazing years! 3y
Smrloomis @TheNextBook I was just thinking of reading this or something else on Hawai'i this year. My Mom grew up there 💖🌺🌈 3y

syasutake Where did you go to college? I'm a UH Manoa alum, class of '97. 😄 I understand about wanting to be closer to family, especially after your son was born! I left after I graduated from UH--I did have family in HI but was ready to get back to the mainland. I moved to San Francisco and met my husband there. Coincidence that he was from Hawaii! (edited) 3y
TheNextBook I went to Hawaii Pacific University Class of 08! I loved going to school out there! I'm from Cali so my family could come visit but my hubby's family couldn't. 3y

Day25 #booktober #Ilikebigbooks I like the right big book for the right time, mood, and place. Shortly after moving to Oahu, I decided I should read Michener's Hawaii-all 1,136 pages of it, so I bought a used paperback and carted it along to the beach & everywhere else until I finished it. I followed it with a 'chaser' of Tales of the South Pacific-a mere 384 pages-almost a short story in the Michener world! 🌺🍍🌴

BarbaraTheBibliophage I wondered who would post Michener for this photo challenge. Great story! 3y
BethFishReads I've read them both. Was totally sucked into Hawaii 3y
ApoptyGina69 I've read them both also. Love them! 3y
