The Silk Roads: A New History of the World - Peter Frankopan

My lovely local library organised an inter-library loan and now I have a gorgeous, fat book waiting for me to crack open. It's tempting me from the top of the bookcase, uncaring that I have work to do. The Silk Roads looks fascinating and had a great review in The Guardian. I'm an intrepid armchair traveller, and on this journey I'll also be travelling back in time. Can't wait!
