Wildlife Photographer of the Year Desk Diary 2014
Wildlife Photographer of the Year Desk Diary 2014
by Natural History Museum
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For more than 15 years I've been given a 'Country Living' Diary which I have become very attached to, but this year it didn't come so I decided to change completely and although I haven't had time yet to see all the very special photos and the notes by the photographers, there is plenty of space for appointments I am very happy with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Investigation of care and the failure of care of mental illness in Britiain in the '80s, 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading Jenny Diski's review in the LBR and for reasons of my own I was interested to read this book and was not disappointed. Compelling because although harrowing to read it is beautifully written, It is about Barbara Taylor's own hellish journey through extreme mental illness (she calls them her madness years), her psychotherapy,and her years as a mental patient at Friern, but it is also a historical meditation on mental illness and mental health care in Britain in that period.

4.0 out of 5 stars True histories of adopted children seeking their natural mothers since the 1975 Children's Act, 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think that this is an important book to read if you are adopted or are thinking of adopting. Deeply moving and thought provoking. The author comes to some uncomfortable conclusions. THe book arrived quicly and in reasonable condition.

Embers
by Carol Brown Janeway
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I have read in many years, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Embers (Paperback)
This was a present and because I enjoyed it so much have been giving it to fiends and relations that I think would appreciate it. I read it last summer and re read it immediately so as to enjoy the language slowly. An extraordinary book about friendship and old age. So sad that the author was never recognised as a great writer in his life time. I highly recommend it

3.0 out of 5 stars Very attractive, 8 April 2013

I only gave this rating because there is soo little difference between this size and the 230 ml size that it is indistinguishable to the eye. Is there a slightly bigger size?
