I'm also reading a series set in Egypt but it's the late 1880's. Archeologists are the main characters but of course that would be boring so it gets spiced up with intrigue. The first one I read was The Last Camel died at Noon and I just finished The Mummy Case. The series is by Elizabeth Peters.

My daughter is reading (she is twelve) the Maximum Ride Series. It is by James Patterson. She thinks it is awesome.

Finally, after many long years, I'm rereading one of my very favorite books, A Stranger In A Strange Land by Robert Heinlein!

I recently read Made From Scratch: Discovering the Pleasures of a Handmade Life by Jenna Woginrich. It was a good read; clever and informative.
