#AtoZChallenge Post: R for Records and Robert Bauval

R for records, or, more appropriate, as the subtitle is written, The Quest for the Hall of Records, in Robert Bauval’s nonfiction book,"Secret Chamber" is one of the best books to read if you’re interested in the Sphynx and the Hall of Records of Atlantis. I highly recommend it. :-)

I’m often in awe of authors who travel to places in search of information, equipped by their quick wit and sheer determination in their tireless pursuit of facts. This book exposes secrets that the author has discovered, with photos of his travels, the people he met and the things he had learned more about.

This was one of my Dad’s books – “was” because it’s already been awhile when he moved on to a better place up there. (I still miss him at times. He was into nonfiction books that dig really deep on controversial issues and things that are considered—up to now—to be a mystery by many.) I agree with its book review; it’s really a “spellbinding book”.

What books have you read that you consider as “spellbinding” reads? Any nonfiction favorites that you’d like to share?

Sounds like a fascinating read. I'm not much into nonfiction, but the book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabether Gilbert is one of my all time favorite books.

Hello, Nana Prah! Sorry for the late reply. I watched the film of "Eat, Pray, Love" but haven't read the book yet. That would change soon. :-) Thanks for the visit!
