Your Field Guide to Spotting Seshat

Seshat tends to be where the words are. If you're in a library, a bookstore, or near a computer, don't be surprised if you see her out of the corner of your eye. She's a tall, very quiet lady who prefers to have something to read or watch to pass the timeā€”and, of course, to help fill her daily report to Ra with. If you're interesting, she might stay around a while. Get reading, Shmoopers, so you have something good to chat about!
