Yes, there'd be more topics for discussion and also it would enlighten us all, don't you think?
I have some books on Egypt that are as old as the hills
So much has been discovered since those books were written... it's simply astounding
I eagerly await the fruition of your plans Meresankh
Y'know, when I was in 6th grade I was all set to write a book on ancient Egypt. It was basically a research-oriented book. I had 25 chapters in all, covering all the subjects one would like to know about Egypt. I went to the printer's one evening, all buoyed with my idea; but had to return empty-handed.
The owner of the printing press asked me two basic questions: "Have you visited Egypt?" and "How many people do you think would buy the book... after all there won't be more than a handful interested in the subject you've chosen."
I was so heartbroken (and still am)
