this is a swiz - it says the app is free, but you have to pay for the magazines apart from a trial sample.

Convictions: How I Learned What Matters Most
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent stuff from Marcus Borg, 30 April 2015

The last book written before his untimely death in2015, it summarises what he feels about the christian life. Unashamedly progressive in approach, it keeps a sensitive appreciation of other views. Only for someone living in the UK, some of the political contexts are specifically American.

helpful guide to the lectionary from a progressive christian angle. Quite critical of the compilers of the readings at times. Complements well another book by same author of Year of Luke.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bargain LED lamps, 24 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
good price and work fine. Did not realise when ordering that goods shipped from Hong Kong, so took few days to arrive. One criticism would be that the colour temp of the light is described as "warm white" but it does have quite a pronounced yellow quality which may not suit all tastes.

4.0 out of 5 stars HTC desire case, 30 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
basic case does the job OK. Only criticism is that the buttons on side and top are a bit hard to use. The top on/off button is recessed and difficult to get to. The side volume controls are covered by a flexible piece of the case which is rather stiff to operate.

good price for LED bulb - but maybe a bit low power for a lot of applications

works better than the last player app I had. Only downside seems to be that it always seems to play the videos in the landscape mode even if the Kindle is held in the upright position. Why is there not an official YouTube app for Kindle though?


The Year of Luke (THEOLOGY FROM EXILE:  Commentary on the Revised Common Lectionary for an Emerging Christianity Book 1)
The Year of Luke (THEOLOGY FROM EXILE: Commentary on the Revised Common Lectionary for an Emerging Christianity Book 1)
Price: £6.48

4.0 out of 5 stars Lectionary readings and commentary, 27 May 2014
Raven is rather critical of the panel which selects the readings for the lectionary, but provides a refreshing approach in his interpretations. These are essentially from a progressive/liberal view of the Bible.
I do have reservations about the suitability of this type of book for the Kindle format. It is ideal for a novel where one starts at the beginning and reads straight through, but less so for a reference book which one dips into here and there. In such cases I find a printed book much easier to navigate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Manual cat flap., 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unit was relatively easy to fit once the hole was made in the door panel. However I found it necessary to seal the tunnel to the outside plate with silicone sealant to prevent ingress of rain water.
Unfortunately I have since had to replace this unit with a microchip detecting model, as I had not anticipated that another cat from the area would get into the house via the original manual flap - this may be something to bear in mind if anyone else is deciding which version to buy. Obviously these are more expensive, but with hindsight I would have been better going for this from the outset.

As there is not an official youtube app for kindle, this seems to do the job ok. All the necessary features.
