What to write???
I love to read (how original!) and will attempt pretty much anything from children's books ( all-time favourites being The Hobbit and The Once and Future King) through trashy murder mysteries ( I collect the Green Penguins) to my current passion - books about Egypt and the Pyramids. I am also a huge fan of 19th and early 20th century exploration books preferably about the Middle East, any old desert or the search for the sources of the Blue and White Niles.
I like to read a couple of pulpy novels then 2 or 3 rather more challenging ones so I have an enormous 'to read' pile next to my bed. Top of that pile at the moment is The Lost Oases.
I'm not going to put all my books on my shelf but what I do put there will be available for anyone who is interested. This means that my available bookshelf is maybe not such a good guide to what I really like as the ones I love I keep!! My only 2 wild releases went uncaught so I think I'd rather just send them out to people who want them.
Let me know!! The only slight hitch is that I am currently living in Cairo and it is really hard to send parcels from here but if you are not in a big rush send me your address and I will post you the book from the UK whenever I next go home!
