One Moment, One Morning
One Moment, One Morning
Price: 3.59

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, 18 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In all honesty I think this is a 2 star book. The premise is quite good in that it develops round the lives ( and death) of characters who have a chance meeting one morning on a commuter train and follows them to a rather too neat conclusion some months later. However I have given it 3 stars because, although simplistic, it is well written and It did keep me turning the pages until the loose ends were tied up at the conclusion.

This is not great writing but it is a really good read that keeps you turning the pages and has encouraged me to try another of Kate Morton's books.

Circulon Infinite Hard Anodised Covered Chef's Pan - 26 cm

5.0 out of 5 stars Love at first sight !, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this pan - it's probably the best pan I've ever had and certainly the most expensive but absolutely worth it. It's heavy so you do, in the main, need two hands and therefore the little handle is very useful and not just for decoration. It cleans like a dream and is an absolute pleasure to use, deep enough for stir fries not to tumble over the top but also great for soups and stews. If you are dithering over the purchase I would say ' go for it' !

This review is from: Silver Bay (Kindle Edition)
A very slow start and I probably wouldn't have persevered if I hadn't previously enjoyed Jo Jo Moyes's other books. However, once the characters start to unfold it turns into another of her novels that you can't put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great camera, 11 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best compact camera I have owned. It is chunky to hold but not too heavy, is a good compromise if you don't want to carry an SLR and most importantly takes photographs with excellent colour, sharpness and clarity.


Photographer's Guide to the Panasonic Lumix LX7
Photographer's Guide to the Panasonic Lumix LX7
by Alexander S. White
Edition: Paperback
Price: 15.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading!, 11 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you own a Panasonic LX7 and are not a really experienced photographer then I would highly recommend this book to help understand the workings and abilities of the camera. The on - line manual which comes with the camera is hardly what one could call user friendly so, despite the rather steep price, this purchase has been really worth while - not the least because I can read it in bed !

5.0 out of 5 stars A SIX star book, 23 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always loved the Assyrian corner at the British Museum and could not have wished for a book to do better justice to it. The photographs are superb and bring out details that I've never noticed before - now I just need to do the 400 mile round trip to see them in the flesh (stone) again!

1.0 out of 5 stars 15 minute rule, 4 Jan 2013

I spent the first half hour of reading waiting for something useful to be suggested but gradually realised that it was never going to happen. Sad to say, a bit of common sense will motivate you better than using precious time reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars 70 years remembered, 4 Jan 2013

Delighted with my purchase which I bought as a present for a friend but am very tempted to get one for myself as well. A really interesting collection of annecdotes from 70 years of programmes.

5.0 out of 5 stars great little composter, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Small Wooden Composter (Misc.)
It remains to be seen how the wood survives the winter wet but so far so good. I have never been successful with composting but am trying again with this small enclosure and it seems to be working. Quite easy to put together but it will help if you have a hammer or mallet handy and are familiar with assembling things that are not a perfect fit.
