Reading Suggestions for Egypt

Reading good books about the areas you’re visiting tends to make your trip much fuller and more rewarding. As weight on light aircraft is limited, you might consider reading the thickest books before you leave for your trip! Or… download books on an electronic reading device.

The major country-specific guidebooks (i.e., Lonely Planet, Rough Guide) tend to offer a good overview of the country’s history. One of the best resources for travel books is Longitude Books. They organize books by country/region, which makes it easy to see what is available.

There is such a vast array of books and films about Egypt and with people having such different genre preferences, instead of recommending specific titles, we are sharing a few links to help you find the best books for your particular interests:
