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.

The Secret History of the Mongol Queens: How the Daughters of Genghis Khan Rescued His Empire (Audio) - Jack Weatherford The second of Weatherford's books on the Mongol empire. This one uses a focus on women's roles, including leadership, as a lens for understanding Mongol history in relation to European and Asian history. Moral: It bites to be female, even if you're a queen.
