NutriBullet Recipes: Healthy Recipes That You Can Make With Just the Touch of a Button. (Quick & Easy Recipes)
NutriBullet Recipes: Healthy Recipes That You Can Make With Just the Touch of a Button. (Quick & Easy Recipes)
Price: £1.80

1.0 out of 5 stars Unclear instructions, 6 July 2014
This book lists too many ingredients per recipe to process in the nutribullet in one go, so not very useful. It refers to 'blenders', so it's impossible to tell whether you're supposed to nutribullet some of the ingredients and then add to others in a blender, or what you are supposed to do.
Very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent summary of air travel pitfalls., 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This to-the-point guide gives a good summary of travelling by air. There are excellent suggestions on the best times to book your flight, how to choose the better seats and how to travel light. I particularly liked the debunking of 'something for nothing'. Apparently there's no need to waste your time or energy on ways to save on the costs of travelling by air. Great to know. All in all a very helpful guide.

How to Find Profitable Niches: 5 Five-Minute Free & Easy Methods for Any Niche Endeavor
How to Find Profitable Niches: 5 Five-Minute Free & Easy Methods for Any Niche Endeavor
Price: £1.84

5.0 out of 5 stars Finding the right niche in which to publish your book., 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have given this book top rating because the author works very hard to give as much information as possible, and it is all very useful information. And, unless you publish in the right niche your book will sink without trace because the readers who are interested in your book will not be able to find it.
Discovering the right niche for your work is not an easy task but, as the author points out, the Chinese Proverb says "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." This book does, indeed, teach you how to find the right niche for you. It requires a certain amount of commitment and work on your part, and this is not glossed over. But anyone who publishes already knows you have to work hard to produce a book people are prepared to pay for.
The book is free at the moment; grab it while you can, but even if you have to pay for it it is worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding book even seasoned Kindle publishers will almost certainly find useful., 18 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read many books on the best way to publish books on Kindle, and this one is, so far, my favourite. It has a no-nonsense, brisk approach, it covers the essentials and it has one or two extras I had not come across before.
If you are a newby this book is gold; if you are a seasoned Kindler you will still find a nugget or two, even if only to admire the approach to publishing ebooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for all Kindle e-book publishers., 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I owe AAron Shepard a huge debt - I read Aiming at Amazon, POD for Profit and Perfect Pages before setting out as a small publisher - and he answered all my questions in those three books. I have now published thirteen titles, in hardback, paperback and as ebooks, and Aaron's books were always there to guide me.
This latest book on publishing colour books on Kindle is no exception. It is easy to follow and goes into the nitty gritty of what has to be done to produce a good colour book. There are a lot of pitfalls and this book covers all the ones I have come across. The amount of helpful information, the brilliant step-by-step guides, should make preparing your files for publishing a colour book relatively simple. In fact I had already published a book of paintings before reading this book, but I think I can make the next one better by following Aaron's suggestions. They are clear, detailed and full of outstanding advice. I can't praise PICTURES ON KINDLE highly enough. Rush out to buy it. The price may go up - I paid 1 UK penny for it - but it will be worth it at any (reasonable) price...
Thank you, Aaron.

Mouth Matters; Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body: How Your Mouth Ages Your Body and What YOU Can do About It
Mouth Matters; Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body: How Your Mouth Ages Your Body and What YOU Can do About It
Price: £6.63

5.0 out of 5 stars A book everyone should read..., 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mouth Matters is a fascinating and engrossing account of the importance of your mouth as far as your health is concerned. This had not occurred to me before.
The book deals with many aspects of mouth health, and how to keep it. A little technical at times, it still gives an outstanding review of how important mouth health is, and suggestions on how to keep healthy. This also involves finding the right dentist and hygienist, sometimes a tricky task.
I would be surprised if any reader, however well educated in the subject, doesn't find the odd gold nugget or two to help in the future for themselves and their families.


Blood on God's Carpet (Ulverscroft)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Eileen de Lisle yarn, 15 April 2013
Eileen has a way of telling a story which makes you want to read on and not put the book down until you 've got to the end.
This isn't a 'whodunnit' because you know who 'dun' it right from the start, but the twists and turns as the murderer at first escapes the authorities keep you hooked, and there's always the question of whether he 'll actually be caught...
If you like murder stories you will enjoy - perhaps appreciate is a better word - this book.
