Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Nerdy facts for everyone, 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is really witty and a really digestible way to get some real insights into the provenance of words and idioms in the English language.

Now..... my children ask me to read a chapter or two of this aloud every evening meal. I know, it sounds sad but the book is really quite entertaining. I should caution that some of the chapters may be too racy for very young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart bit of corporate bling, 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife bought this for me for Christmas. It is the real deal and fits my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 so snuggly. It affords fantastic protection to my tablet and looks so good. I would find it hard to believe there was a better real leather cover available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick replacement, 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently lost my charger and needed a new one (as my wife got annoyed by me borrowing hers all the time). This came from China faster than many similar orders I've made from vendors in the UK.

The product is a pukka Samsung item and its performance has been as expected.

Very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last decent source of affordable good-qaulity iItalic pens, 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been after a good italic pen for a while. These used to be easy to buy back in the 70s and 80s but have become a specialist product, normally lurking under calligraphy. However, this pen looks like an ordinary pen and the ink runs superbly. Sheaffer always used to be a great make....and it still is (though it pains me to say this as a Brit). Cannot put my finger on why the nibs etc work better, but they just do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good reliable pen and good looking too., 9 Aug. 2013

Sheaffer has managed to carry on making good looking pens that work and have a nice balance. This pen never needs scribbling to get the ink to run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really unusual and great for the downstairs toilet, 9 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Sticky Monsters (Hardcover)
If you haven't seen this book then get your hands on one as it is really unusual and thought-provoking. Basically, this Danish chap draws pictures of monsters on Post-Its. The detail has to be seen to be believed.

I found myself humming this in the car recently and put the query into Amazon. A minute later I had the tune for real - groovy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some real classics here., 21 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I heard one of the tracks on a documentary about ELO recently and found it on this album. There are a good half dozen really good songs on this and the rest are a bit 'samey'. Still, it's cheap and worth a listen just to broaden your mind a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a voice!, 21 Dec. 2012

This review is from: Skyfall (Audio CD)
I don't like everything that Adele does but this song is something really quite special. Mind you, I always thought that Amy Winehouse's song, 'Love is a Losing Game' is the best Bond song that never was.
