Number of books in my mailbox this week – zero! It’s a good thing as I have a small pile in my review tray and last week I went to Sutherland Library.
It’s the best library I’ve ever been to and I keep my membership even though I don’t live there any more. It’s worth the 45 min trip each way just to borrow and return books. They have a great range of historical non-fiction. This trip I borrowed What Life was Like On the Banks of the Nile, Isak Dinesen’s Africa, Sudan: Ancient Treasures, The Legacy of Ancient Egypt, Magic Stones: The Secret World of Ancient Megaliths, Portraits of Africa, Sahara Man, The British Museum: Africa, The Ancient Egyptians: Life and Customs and Journey to Mauritius. Yes, I am researching my next historical novel. No it’s not about Ancient Egypt!

Congrats on seeing the illos, Sandy.
And I’m so glad to hear you say you don’t see pictures in your head. I’m the same. I’m always surpsied to see what the illustrator does with my stories because I have no rpeconceptions about how the illos should look.
