PS This is a ‘fair trade’ product. By buying an e-book from me, you are contributing to the Egyptian economy. It enables us at Flats in Luxor to keep employing our ten staff during quiet months in the tourism calendar, which is a huge help to them and their extended families, especially at this time.
A warning to all students everywhere, don’t copy them. You will be found out and done for plagiarism. They now have electronic checkers that go through essays and if they find a quote from someone else that is not acknowledged you are in big, big trouble. It is just not worth it and anyway part of the fun is finding out for yourself and broadening your own knowledge. Also if you are thinking about doing an e-book yourself, do what I did and check with your university what their rules on copyright are.
