Try 'How to read Egyptian Hieroglyphs' by Mark Collier and Bill Manley. It's well presented and not too hard to follow.

Good luck.

I have a book called "The illustrated hieroglyphic dictionary" but I don't remember who it's by, and I'm at work. But I posted it on another page in this topic, if you look around you might be able to find it.

Yep! It's easy to understand, but you can't just glance through it. You have to actually apply yourself and read. That's all I can say.

You mean Hilary Wilson's Understanding Hieroglyphs? That's really a good book.

My advice- start with Collier and Manley's book, and then after that (if you're serious) then use Gardiner's Egyptian Grammar. Really, the more basic books use a silly cut-and-paste method of translation (that is, giving you large chunks of vocab underneath) and thus they do not actually let you get to grips with the grammar of the language.
Collier and Manley's book is good to get started with and familliarise yourself with the layout and language of the Egpytians, but don't expect it to enable you to read the inside of Tuthmoses' tomb. On the other hand, it does teach you some of the 'formulae' of certain inscriptions to get you started.

Collier & Manley is good for the casual student, who wants to be able to read out the words, and some cartouches and offering inscriptions.
Gardiner's is, on the other hand, a monster of a book, and it weighs you down with morasses of grammar. This means that you make slow progress and it is quite daunting, but it is the only real way of learning the language, and getting to the stage where you can read all inscriptions.

In short- start with Collier & Manley and then if you like it, use G.E.G when you finish it. Good luck!
