The following books are the best on ancient Egypt that I have ever read! (and I have read a lotof books!)

Red Land, Black Land by Barbara Mertz ( this is like the most down to earth book on Egyptian daily life I know)

Ancient Egypt discovering its splendors by national geographic (this book is really well made with nice colour pictures and very acurate information)

Sacred Sexuality in Ancient Egypt: the secrets of the forbidden papyri byRuth Schumann-Antelme (this is a little naughty lol but the first to fully explore ancient Egyptian sexuality and then some!)

Hatshepsut by Joyce a Tyldesley (this is a great book about the "queen that would be king,")

River God by Wilbur Smith (this is a fictional story but one of my favorite books! I highly sudjest looking for it!)

thats all I can think of right now but I hope I helped

Smile

"Reflections on the Nile" (Suzanne Frank) is great. It even offers a *hilarious* theory about Moses + the Exodus, and Hatchepsut. The story is about a woman who sneaks into Karnak at night and travels back in time. I won't spoil this by revealing too much...you have to read it.

"Daughters of Isis" by Joyce Tyldesley is interesting to those who want to know how women in ancient Egypt lived.

Red Land Black Land is good for information on females in Egypt. It explains how they lived there daily lives and what they used and there practices and all that stuff
