S.R.R. Colvin (srrcolvin) | 24 comments Yesterday I found the web site for "The Chronicles of the Stone" by Fiona Ingram - (middle-grade fiction, ages 9-12)

Then I clicked the link on the map for the first book - The Secret of the Sacred Scarab" -

Very nicely done web site. If Egyptian history and culture interests you, click "The Journey" tab and the interactive map that comes up has clickable place names from the story that will pop up new information to read.

I haven't read the book yet, but I am so intrigued that I ordered one yesterday. If the book is half as good as the web site concept, then it's a winner.

I wish I'd thought of it!!!

S.R.R. Colvin (srrcolvin) | 24 comments It's cool! I'm waiting on my copy of the first book (...Sacred Scarab) to arrive. I ordered it from Books-a-Million, and added a couple of other books I wanted so I could get the free shipping.

I wonder if she'll fill that whole world map with books!!!

Funny line after your name. What's up with that?

S.R.R. Colvin (srrcolvin) | 24 comments I doubt it. But I'd rather have one in my hand anyway, so I ordered it. I decided against getting the Kindle for that same reason. I want to be able to hold the book. (I'm old as dirt, you know, and I grew up turning pages.)

S.R.R. Colvin (srrcolvin) | 24 comments Well, I finished The Secret of the Sacred Scarab. I sat up last night until I got to the end. I usually can't stay up late (it's a curse of the aging process), but I couldn't put the book down until I got to the end!

It's a great book, fast moving and action-packed, filled with mystery, history, exotic scenery, great characters, and wicked villains.

It truly is a "good read!"

S.R.R. Colvin (srrcolvin) | 24 comments Tell me about it. Yes, there is always something out there calling you. I was in the middle of a Clive Cussler NUMA book when this Sacred Scarab showed up. Clive was placed on hold.

One day you'll turn around and be 50 years old and unable to stay awake past supper time. LIKE ME! Gotta read 'em while you can.
