A book is a treasure; a book about
When I was at university, my most favourite place on campus was the archaeology library...it was wonderful! It was packed floor-to-ceiling with old books, some more than a century old, leather bound and unashamedly over-sized.
And then there was the smell...that beautiful musty-old-book smell. The aroma assaulted your nostrils as you went about your research, hauling you back to bygone days, before the days of computers, of smartphones and of Kindles.
Entering the library brought on a sense of reverence in me, almost like I'd gone into a church, and I sometimes felt rude, not taking my shoes off at the entrance, for fear of making too much noise.
Unfortunately, the library has gone now. All the books have been moved into the main university library, and the rooms now house the department's Garstang museum.
But my love of books remains; and in particular, books about Ancient Egypt. Fact or fiction, with an Egyptology book in my hand, I'm a happy girl!
But what about you?
Maybe you're involved in producing a book, dissertation or article; a publisher, academic, student or self-publishing author, perhaps. If so, please head on over to my services page to find out how I might be able to help you.
Or maybe you're the avid reader of these books, in which case you might like to have a look through my blog to find more reading material for you to devour.
Either way, please do get stuck in, and enjoy!
