Black & Decker AS6NG 6V Cordless Screwdriver
Black & Decker AS6NG 6V Cordless Screwdriver
Offered by by4cheap LIMITED
Price: 19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars just the ticket, 28 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i wanted an electronic screwdriver but didn't want the ones with the big handles that plus in to recharge. This is perfect for those little jobs around the house and uses readily available batteries. Sort of wich there were other tools of similar size for those of us who only do small repairs when absolutely necessary and too small a job to get someone in to do it.

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (Wordsworth Classics)
Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (Wordsworth Classics)
by James Joyce
Edition: Paperback
Price: 1.89

1.0 out of 5 stars it's no more than OK on a rainy day, 28 May 2014

There are 2 schools of thought
1 James Joyce is oconic and wonderful
2 Joyce is rubbish
I started reading this so i could discuss it with my daughter who was struggling with Joyce for her uni course and i have to admit it is poor, not as abysmal at Ullysees which is so badly written i will finish it just to make sure it doesn't get better. Portrait is better written although an earlier work but unless you are particularly into a record of early C20 irish middle class life it is exceptionally boring. The catholic background is not so much underlying as in your face.
There will be many who disagree with me but once i have finished Ulyssees i will never waste money on this writer again.

This review is from: The President's Hat (Paperback)
this was recommended as a a 'couldn't put it down' book - i wouldn't go that far but it is a gentle story that you can pick up and put down. I may even read it again sometime in the future. You could probably read the whole book in one day.

This review is from: Out and About (Paperback)
Shirley Hughes has such a gift for children's literature; i read these to my children who are now grown up the journey through the seasons with such lovely illustration and rhyme was a childhood joy for them; eldest daughter is at university doing English literature and education and using lots of children's books this will be really good for both her course and her memories.

Got the axe Christmas morning tuned her up and played away. She's light weight with a long slutty neck & a warm welcoming tone. after thing her down to C standard I found that with the right amp this baby can kick your teeth in.
So to get to the point She's pretty, she's an easy play and for the price I'm very surprised at the quality a very good guitar

The Low GI Diet Cookbook: 100 Delicious Low GI Recipes to Help You Lose Weight and Keep It Off
The Low GI Diet Cookbook: 100 Delicious Low GI Recipes to Help You Lose Weight and Keep It Off
by Kaye Foster-Powell
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you haven't read any other Low GI books, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are a lot of nice recipes in here and if you haven't already got low GI cookbooks it is a good all rounder to start with. One thing I would say is check the low GI charts especially if you want this to help with diabetes as there are some recipes with too much sugar in; could substitute sweetener though.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is fun once it is put together, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is difficult to put together and the magnetic pods have to be assembled too. These magenetic pods do come out as you use the hoop no matter how much pressure you use to push them in.
Having said that my daughters love it and are enjoying exercising in this way. difficult to store unless you break it down which brings you back to assembly problems again. However on the whole money well spent
