Mail on Sunday: Luxurious like Egyptian Cotton

AKA In My Mailbox is a meme inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie and hosted by the lovely Kristi over at The Story Siren. It's a look at all the Lit related items...books or otherwise, we've acquired during the week.

I'm all about historical fiction this week. I decided not to get any more books because I'm a little behind n my TBR list but my sister needed to get her new libe card so a visit to the library meant I didn't come home empty handed.
Antony & Cleopatra by Colleen McCullough is the only book I've gotten this week.
Goodreads


I think I mentioned before I'm a bit of a culture vulture and I lurve learning more about different society, cultures. One of my fave cultures and yes there are a few is Egyptian. I was totally obsessed in my teen years and stalked many an exhibit at various museums in different countries. So when I saw this book on the shelf I was hooked. The cover is gorgeous and I thought I should really buy it BUT I'd have to wait for the delivery and I want it on my shelf nowish.


Off now to Kirsti's Linky!

The book does look good. I too am fascinated with Ancient Egypt. But I want to go farther back to Tutankhaman. My IMM is here. Happy reading!
