I just found this treasure this weekend. Written by my favorite Egyptologist/Bookseller :) It is great so far. Covers all things Mummy, lots of hidden gems in this one! It covers interesting, funny, and gruesome mummy tidbits. I think this is a book I will enjoy reading and love to have around to peruse on occasion!
