I read widely and in most genres but romance and westerns. Here you'll find my reviews since 2007, with a few reviews of previously read books as well.


In 2012, I completed an "authors of the world" challenge, reading a book for every country (and a few other entities) by someone who'd lived there for at least two years. I expect to tag these books by challenge and country in the near future. I'm still refining my list by adding books that better meet my challenge criteria.

My Mongolian World - Urgunge Onon Onon, a Genghis Khan scholar, here recounts his childhood and early adulthood. He lovingly evokes rural Mongolian scenes, interwoven with folktales recounted by the people around him. Read with Weatherford's Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World, particularly the chapters on Genghis Khan's childhood and environs.
