Under cover of night in Richmond, Virginia, a human monster strikes, leaving a gruesome trail of stranglings that has paralyzed the city. Medical examiner Kay Scarpetta suspects the worst: a deliberate campaign by a brilliant serial killer whose signature offers precious few clues. With an unerring eye, she calls on the latest advances in forensic research to unmask the madman. But this investigation will test Kay like no other, because it's being sabotaged from within--and someone wants her dead.
thoughts? I really liked this one this time, the two other times I've read this book, I wasn't terribly in love with it or anything, but I liked it a whole lot this time.

I finished a book for the first time in a year or so, really sad, I know. I used to read by the shit load, so it really is sad. But in hopes that maybe I'll actually start reading more frequently, I'm going to keep track of them. Or rather... my one book. Lol. No, I am kind of hoping that if I keep track I'll read more or something... So, yeah. :p

01. Daughters of Isis - Women of Ancient Egypt Joyce Tyldesley
rating: 7 out of 10
started: ???
finished: may 25th, 2011
pages: 275
During the dynastic period (3000 BC - 332 BC), as the Greek historian Herodotus was intrigued to observe, Egyptian women enjoyed a legal, social and sexual independence unrivalled by their Greek or Roman sisters, unrivalled, indeed, by women in Europe until the late nineteenth century. They could own and trade in property, work outside the home, marry foreigners and even live alone without the protection of a male guardian. Futhermore, women fortunate enough to be members of the royal harem were vastly influential, as were those rare women who rose to rule Egypt as 'female kings'.
Joyce Tyldesley draws upon archaeological, historical and ethnographical evidence to piece together a vivid picture of daily life in Egypt - marriage and the home, work and play, grooming, religion - all viewed from a female perspective. She has an engaging eye for incidental detail and draws fascinating parallels and contrasts between the ancient and our modern world.

Just want to wish you a happy, happy birthday Luna, my dear. You caught up! :) Only took you twelve days, lol. Well, not completely, but close enough, right? Hopefully, you don't get sick on your birthday, like I did. Anyhow, have a fun day shopping, make your mummy and sis buy you pretty gifts. <333

I will probably rarely update this, but I need somewhere to toss some quotes. So, yes, a quote list. Only one at the moment, because I'm changing the quote in my friends only post, so yep. :)
The quotes will be in the comments to make it easier to distinguish one from another.
