Thanks for the recommendation! I'm not normally a fan of fantasy, but I'll give the series a try.
And in the spirit of adding to the pile, have you considered joining the Chronological Read of American History? It's a Shelfari group that is currently reading presidential biographies in order; right now we're voting on Millard Fillmore (surprisingly, there are enough Millard Fillmore biographies out there to actually have a vote on them!) and we should get to Abraham Lincoln by January. Given your reading interests, I think it might be right up your alley!
In response to your question about the Dune sequels, though I'm only into the third book at this point I would say yes, with the caveat that you adjust your expectations. Frankly the sequels just don't have the first book's scope; the second one is built around a conspiracy, but it doesn't gel as well as the plot of the first book did. Still, any book suffers by comparison to Dune; the books are still better than a lot of what you'll find out there, particularly if you're invested in the characters and interested in seeing how Herbert develops them in his increasingly elaborate universe.
Welcome to the History Non-Fiction Group. There are a few group rules posted at the top of the group page.
