The Complete Works of Saki
The Complete Works of Saki
by Saki [ H.H. Munro ]
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Second-hand books, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far, I've been very fortunate. I buy books for peanuts (actually, an expensive little packey of nuts in a pub costs more). The postage outruns the basic cost by a jugful. Everything I've bought has been in good and readable condition. Amazon has proved better than book-dealers, most of the time. Alas, nobody has ever left a $100-pound note in as a book mark, but one can't expect too much. G2JL

As describe, on time, cheaper than rip-off chemist's, what more is there to say about a simple transaction such as this ? The end

4.0 out of 5 stars The baby will no doubt learn how to get out of prison, later on. For now, effective., 19 Feb 2013

A bit of a blighter to fit (not exactly the supplier's fault; production tolerances, no doubt). Otherwise, fine. It was merely an extension to an existing gate.

The nature of the universe: A series of broadcast lectures

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read in the light of recent developments, 19 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suppose this questionnaire is automatic. There is little to 'rate', in fact. I bought a second-hand book. It was in reasonable condition, at a fair price (my first copy was free, from the writer; "neither borrower nor lender be"...

Delivery-time & packing-method were fair. Can one say more ? "Great !" "Terrific !" - Well, OK...

4.0 out of 5 stars Cutting-edge Technology, 20 Jan 2012
Many years ago, when working, I bought properly-designed nail-clippers in the USA. All those ever available here have a concave cutting-edge curvature, and are very awkward to use. What's more, they are so small as to suit baby fairies' finger-nails, perhaps, but scarcely adults' toenails. The American ones were convex, so much more useful and usable. These from Tweezerman are straight, which turns out to be even better still. I don't lay eggs, but I know when they are bad; I don't manufacture tools, but I know well when they are suitable for actual human use, and not merely designed to be sold. In summary, an excellent product, that in a sane, discerning society would drive all others from the market-place. You're advised to jump in, while stocks last !

I have no association with, or interest in, the supplier or the manufacturer.

5.0 out of 5 stars As it should be, 14 Dec 2010
This review is from: Greek Grammar (Paperback)
I bought a book I wanted, second hand. It arrived in good time. It was as described. What more can one say ? Some things have not shown up; most do; some you win, some you lose.

Thanks to all concerned, MX & HNY from TRM

5.0 out of 5 stars I bought a VCR tape, 5 Mar 2010
There is not much to say: I wanted a particular old film. I found it, at a satisfactory price. The seller sent it. I got it. If he got his money (I haven't heard from him !), then everyone's happy.

All damn-fine splendid, but nothing to rate plus or minus.

Thanks to all concerned - TRM, Hayling Island
