If you are not in a hurry and want to wait for me to have a bit more time, I 
get a copy for under $5.  Let me know; it would be at least 2-4 weeks...

Keep up with Nichole's recovery:

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Help with a book

Hi everyone,
I just finished a children's book, I would say  almost a Young adult, on the 
Rosetta Stone.
And the author does a good job of describing the  stone and what is on it... 
however through the text on certain pages, he states  things like.
The scientists looked at the hieroglyphs like  this.
and then there is what I am to assume is some  hieroglyphic writing.
I was wondering if someone who has access to the  book might be willing to do 
some picture descriptions for these insertions into  the text, and any other 
pictures, though the captions are actually quite  descriptive.  It is a great 
book, only about 70 pages.
Title: The Riddle of the Rosetta Stone
Author: James Cross Giblin
It is the hardcover edition.
I don't think the descriptions of the hieroglyphs  are necessary but they would 
definitely enhance the book and make the reader  feel like they had read the 
entire book instead of knowing that some things were  um missing.
Thanks everyone, smile.
