I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Little Bit of Egyptian Trivia

In honor of my reading The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran I have an interesting piece of Egyptian trivia for you all.

In 1974 the mummy of Ramesses II was transported to Paris for preservation measures. He was issued an Egyptian passport with his occupation listed as King (deceased). Upon his arrival in Paris he was given military honors as any King would.

How cool is that?
