Please everyone suggest books as the books I have are kind of outdated. The newer ones are few and far between in my collection as a student budget really bites:)
There are also a number of books by Budge available for free on the internet- they are a little outdated, but are still recommended by many Egyptophiles.
I had gotten my sister this book, it's filled with different stories and legends regarding the Egyptian Pantheon/Pharohs/Etc. She loves it so far, so thought I could add it to this list.
Ancient Egyptian Myths and Legends - Lewis Spence
I feel if you want to get to know a culture you can learn from their stories, mythology, and legends. I've gone headfirst into reading Welsh, Irish, Scottish, Norse, Scandinavian, and Greek mythology and stories...now most of the Greek stories I already know, but eh, doesn't hurt to brush up =)
