and off we go.



What I have been reading now, "In twenty-five years, the Mongol army subjugated more lands and people than the Romans had conquered in four hundred years." A book about Genghis Khan, the ruler and founder of the Mongol Empire. He spread many ideas and things like paper money, basic education, a universal language, and the first international postal system. Despite his brutality he was tolerant of any religion, culture, etc. He tried to stop torture of any sort and discrimination against other races. All these things were in the 13th century, hence "making of the modern world". An interesting read for sure.

Currently re-reading Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan before I dive into book 12.
