Kings & Queens: The Concise Guide
Kings & Queens: The Concise Guide
by Richard Cavendish
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for the money and a good read, 1 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is excellent. It is a very comprehensive and readable guide to the history of the monarchy of the British Isles. I especially like the overview chapter before each historical period which then details the lives and politics of each sovereign. I initially purchased it for a guide to the personalities of the Wars of the Roses and it does indeed give a very understandable briefing to that particular struggle. If you want a very in-depth history of British kings and queens this is not for you, but as a clear, informative, quick guide,it is unbeatable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good read, 27 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As the sub title says this is a personal history of our (up to now) longest reigning monarch. If your interest is political history then you would probably find this of little interest. I very much enjoyed it. Christopher Hibbert is a very readable writer and I recommend this book as an introduction to Victoria, as a woman, wife, mother and Queen.

Yorkshire Dales Grassington Walks (Rambling Maps)

Price: £2.51

3.0 out of 5 stars sort of useful, 27 Mar. 2013

Useful if you know the area. However if you do not it would not be practical. I think you still need to have the OS map for the area if you are a novice walker in this part of Yorkshire.

This is the only cookbook I have ever bought where I would happily cook every recipe in it. Very easy to follow. Very useful advice about healthy eating. Well worth buying and a definite 4 star recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of lovely photographs, 14 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Victorian Style (Paperback)
I have been searching for a book like this for a while and was very pleased to find it on Amazon. There are lots and lots of lovely lovely photographs detailing the wonderful rich, busy and colourful Victorian interior decor style that appeals to those of us who love clutter. If you want to steal ideas on how to dress a bed-side table with nick nacks or how to display a collection in true Victorian fashion, this is the book for you. After introductory chapters on architecture, interior details and decorative elements each room gets a chapter of its own with lots of glorious colour photographs. This book is must for anyone fortunate enough to live in a Victorian house but also for anyone dreaming of doing so.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sewing book for beginners, 6 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sewing Machine Basics (Paperback)
If you have a sewing machine and have never really known what to do with it this is the book for your. Excellent diagrams,easy to follow text and patterns are included at the back of the book for 11 projects including pillows, curtains and an A-line skirt. The very, very simple envelope cushion cover project means no more buying of expensive cushion covers. If you buy this book you will make friends with your sewing machine.
