Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

The Secret History of the Mongol Queens: How the Daughters of Genghis Khan Rescued His Empire - Jack Weatherford I found this one to be worth finding, full of things I had never found out before, and one that blew most of my notions about the Mongols right out of the water. For those of you who think that history is dull, this book just might change your mind. Well written, with plenty of stories to fire your imagination. Four stars overall, and heartily recommended.
