How To Draw Anything
How To Draw Anything
Price: 2.84

5.0 out of 5 stars Could this be the start of something good?, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this book because I have a yearning to draw. I drew as a teanager my medium being charcoal and pastels. This book has really inspired me to try again. It uses simple language and I learned something new on every single page. Instructions are easy to follow and the images are well defined and easy to follow. I haven't got to the end yet or else I would have drawn you picture!

5.0 out of 5 stars Literature: A myth of itself, 28 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Writing Degree Zero (Paperback)
Not for the faint-hearted, but if you are a student of literary criticism you'll value this work. Barthes is uncompromising in his approach to literary theory. A stimulating read which prokes much thought and much debate

3.0 out of 5 stars Rome, 22 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The kindle edition is OK but you couldn't really walk around Rome with a Kindle in your hand, it would soon get snatched or dropped. Also the maps are so small and faint you just resort to buying a street map in the end. There is some nice info about the various places, as with all Lonely Planet Guides. I would recommend you buy a paper copy of Lonely Planet, rather than the Kindle edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wiring a house in France, 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book was useful. It was informative. A warning however, the diagrams are not clearly presented and I was only able to follow them because I already have knowledge of installing electricity. What is useful about the book is that it explains the differences between wiring a house in France and wiring a house in Britain. Incorrect Installation that is not standard to French electricity rules will not be passed. Therefore it is worth buying this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are a student or a lecturer, do not be without this book, 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have chosen to give this product 5 stars because any student looking for guidance on research skills should look no further than this book. Judith Bell, as always writes concisely and provides step by step advice on how to produce a well written and well researched piece of writing. The structure is sound and logically taking the reader through the sometimes confusing process of doing research. Study skills is a difficult subject to teach and students and lecturers will find the book a valuable resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars why short stories get rejected, 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A sharp, to the point guide for writers looking to publish in magazines. There are hundreds of books on the market to help wanna be writers, but this e-book is concise with easy to follow guidelines which inspire and make you want to revisit your rejected stories. The book is inexpensive and does not waste words getting to the nub of the issues. Excellent value for money.

The DVD is is easy to follow but is challenging too. If you can move you can do these exercises. The warm up is an exercise regime in itself so get your leotard on, it's time to dance!

Sylvanian Families Master Bedroom Set

This set of doll's furniture is beautifully made and could grace any Victorian Doll's House. The detail is excellent although small, the furniture is easy enough and sturdy enough for a five year to handle. My five year old granddaughter just adores her Sylvanian dollies so at present the bedroom is set up in her dollies Windmill House and grand it looks too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yoga for Women, 15 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was really disappointed in this book. There was a lot of information about women's bodies, simple things that any woman would already know about her own body. The title of the book implies that there would be perhaps exercises that are particularly useful for women of all ages. However, the exercises in the book, and there are very few (At the end of the book after all the drivel!) do not explain how to do the exercises - so - here you have a book that explains a woman's periods in great detail! - but assumes that you know all there is to know about Yoga! If you did you wouldn't want a book now would you?
