My Kemetic Library

I hoard books like dragons hoard gold and crazy people hoard cats. (…so what if I have four cats?) I own all of the physical and digital books listed here, but I will not claim to have read them all! I also intend to acquire most of the books listed here as I’m able.

A † next to any book below means it’s available for free and legal download; check my resources page for the link! An asterisk (*) next to a book below means I do not necessarily recommend it; take it with a grain of salt.
