About Menna Fahmi

In 2011, I turned 18 and I haven’t aged since (What? I don’t want to grow any older!). I always wanted to be a book publisher, but I am Egyptian so I am one of those scary people in suits (Majored in innovation and technology management and finance, in case you didn’t get it). Unlike any other girl my age I spend more money on books than I do on clothes, and I’m writing Bibliomane to prove it! I feed on books. And as cliché as it may sound but coffee is my other addiction, just ask the waiters at any coffee place in Cairo; they know me.
