For Now I Am Winter [+digital booklet]
For Now I Am Winter [+digital booklet]
Price: 5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicate, plaintive, haunting, just absolutely lovely!, 11 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plaintive, haunting, just absolutely lovely! This wonderful album contains some of Ólafur Arnalds' very best songs, and the fragile, almost androgynous voice of Arnor Dan makes a perfect vehicle.

A beautiful, beautiful album. Highly recommended to all.

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic fantasy as rich and fantastic as any reader could desire!, 11 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Marc Secchia was a revelation to me--this is a story as rich and fantastic as any reader could wish. There seem to be no limits to this author's imagination! This is a sustained fantasy which swoops along at a blistering pace, epic in scale, and yet also incredibly detailed. It unfolds in the manner of a widescreen movie, and creates not just a new world for the reader to live in and delight in, but multiple inhabitants too -- dragons, princesses, warriors and aviators, beings that don't even have names!

I loved this book, and fantasy is not a genre that I often read. I have already bought another Marc Secchia book, and am half-way through it now. Completely addicted!

Highly recommended epic fantasy that will appeal to young adults and mature readers alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best stylus for drawing., 20 July 2014
Perfect drawing tool! I do a lot of drawing on my Galaxy 4, using mainly ZenBrush -- I tweet my drawings two or three times a day and find them a great way to make contacts and publicise my books (@scribbler4bread).

These are by far the coolest stylus pens I've used. The tip is braided fibre, rather than rubber, which makes them look rather like miniature microphones, and the barrel is longer than normal. The tip glides very smoothly on the screen and provides an amazingly positive feel. Together with the longer barrel, it's the best drawing tool I've found.

There are styli with smaller tips available, but I find that trusting your instincts on where the tip is drawing makes for much better final results.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant idea for party favours, office gifts and economical presents!, 20 July 2014
Fantastic range of colours at less than 50p per stylus -- hard to beat that.

I got this selection for my daughter, who wanted to give away something special with her birthday invitations -- all her friends have smartphones, so this was perfect.

And luckily, I got to keep a couple for myself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very hi-tech towels with dozens of applications!, 20 July 2014
Perfect item for occasions when you need a lightweight face towel, such as when traveling or in the gym. The fabric is very strange at first touch, extremely finely knit, but it does soak up the moisture amazingly well.

I found these very useful for my camera, good for cleaning lenses and camera bodies because they suck up the slightest hint of rain and sweat & leave no lint behind. They weigh just about nothing and fold up very small, too.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handsome and unique bracelet for outdoorsy ladies., 20 July 2014
Very cool item. I got one for each of my kids. These went to my daughters, who were delighted.

I would call this jewelry rather than an authentic survival item, but if you ever find that you've fallen into a deep, dark pit, the bracelet unravels to provide a length of 350lb breaking-strain paracord which you can haul yourself out with -- and the butch clasp is a yachting-standard shackle which allows you to rig up various arrangements.

It could also be useful for horse riders and many other outdoors sportswomen.

In the mean time, it looks the business on a tanned female wrist, and confers a large amount of street cred points!

If you do have to unravel the bracelet for an emergency, getting it back together again would be a severe challenge. However, The Friendly Swede will replace it free of charge if you send a photo of the paracord in use.

Very, very cool item!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool item, ideal for the outdoor type or those who want an excuse to wear a butch bracelet!, 20 July 2014
Very cool item. I got one for each of my kids. This one went to my 22 year-old son, who is very outdoorsy, and was well pleased with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool survival-item-cum-bracelet for the adventurous!, 20 July 2014
Very cool item. I got one for each of my kids. This chunky one went to my 18 year-old son, who is very outdoorsy, and was well pleased with it.

In the mean time, it looks just great on a muscular wrist, and confers a large amount of street cred points!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool charging device for an uncluttered desktop!, 10 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This innovative charger uses wireless induction technology to charge your mobile phone -- meaning you don't need to use the USB port. You simply leave your phone on the circular pad and it starts to charge immediately. You can grab your phone at any time without bothering to unplug a lead.

Charging is fast and reliable and the pad itself is elegantly designed.

For my Samsung Galaxy S4, a small chip is needed, which just sticks onto the battery, under the back cover.

A very cool desktop charger, recommended!
