Staying in Ancient Egypt

I woke up at midnight and read until 2:30 this morning to finish Nefertiti.  It’s been a long time since I kept myself awake to see what would happen in a book.  Thank you, Michelle Moran, for your great storytelling and what must have been an inexhaustible amount of research.  What a pleasure.

And since I’ve sunk myself into Ancient Egypt, I think I might stay there for the rest of this holiday season.   Next up is The Heretic Queen. After Nefertiti, I have pretty high expectations, but I’m going to give it a shot and see what happens.

I can’t remember that last time I read any really good, historical fiction, and I’m truly loving this.  All those serious, literary books on the shelf will just have to wait until 2011 …

    I must, must, must read Nefertiti. I can’t bear to hear of a book that’s kept an avid reader awake into the wee hours, and not read it myself.

    I’m trying to push myself to the end of The Memory of Running, but keep sneaking away to read other things. It’s a bad habit.

    I’m so glad you’ve discovered Michelle Moran’s books. Aren’t they fabulous? This is my first visit to your blog and I’ve had a poke around. What a great blog! Good luck on your memoir. I hope you go far with it!

    task. Pharrell Williams opened the evening with a career-spanning performance
    that saw the singer and producer intersperse many of his biggest hits,
    along with player introductions. Just to be on the safe side, go to an accredited NBA sporting goods store and purchse directly from them.
