Just finished The Pillars of the Earth by Follett which really hit that historical fiction itch I’ve been trying to scratch. He’s written two sequels but I’ll likely leave them till later as the ya re fairly massive books.

Anyone have non-fiction history recommendations? Have a little more free time nowadays so I'm going to make my 15th attempt to start reading again.

I would also suggest Wiseguy by Nicholas Peileggi. Good Fellas was based on it

I didn't like Dune personally, didn't bother with the rest of the series.

Just started Malazan Book of the Fallen, so I'll be on that for a good while
