AUC Press Also Offers Big Summer Sale, Celebration (in Cairo)

Other bookshops offering summer discounts include Alef Bookstores and El Kotob Khan.

And if you’re World Cup-obsessed, don’t forget that there are lots of great books about kora: I saw Nick Hornby’s Fever Pitch at Alef, and I’m sure it’s elsewhere as well. You can also read Mohamed al-Bisatie’s Drumbeat to raise the level of insanity a little.
