I'm thinking of embarking on a long reading journey and looking for advice.

I always see Daniel Boorstin's trilogy at the bookstore and it's always intrigued me. There are The Discoverers, The Seekers, and The Creators. I'm thinking of reading these three and the following that with Jacques Barzun's From Dawn to Decadence.

Has anyone read all four of these? Does Barzun make a good follow-up companion to Boorstin?
