I was about to publish something else about - what else - Byzantium and this book appeared on the screen so now I am almost certain that I am not going to finish Nelson De Mille's "The Gate House". Sorry. I love you but first things first.
What about you?
Aren't you just a little bit curious to find out how the Byzantine Empire shaped the world?
Here's a quote from a Good Reads review of Sailing from Byzantium:
Their heroic efforts inspired the Renaissance, the golden age of Islamic learning, and Russian Orthodox Christianity, which came complete with a new alphabet, architecture, and one of the world’s greatest artistic traditions.The book doesn't cost much. You get it for £10.97 or £6.71. When it comes to books, I don't look at the price. I look at how much it will cost me NOT to have it. But, hey, this is me.
