The Telegraph: All New Quick Crosswords 9 (The Telegraph Puzzle Books)
The Telegraph: All New Quick Crosswords 9 (The Telegraph Puzzle Books)
by THE TELEGRAPH MEDIA GROUP
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Just right for the train, 21 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The familiar and comforting smell of paper and ink you get when opening this book is fully appropriate for a compilation book of newspaper crosswords. The puzzles are of good quality and the text is clear and readable at a good font size. All the answers are listed in just as clear print at the back of the book. The difficulty is about average, I'd say. They're not too hard to do, and not too easy thankfully. There are a lot of single word clues, but of course sometimes this leads to more possible answers – for example, if the clue to a four letter word is "close" then the answer could be "shut" or it could be "near". The book will easily fit in a coat pocket and is just the ideal thing for a train journey.


Can't Feel My Face (Martin Garrix Remix)
Can't Feel My Face (Martin Garrix Remix)
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars But I like it, 21 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the original track and have mixed feelings about this remix. I do love Martin Garrix's take on the song – unlike most remixes it has its own identity and if you took the vocal out it would stand up on its own as a dance track in its own right – but in altering the tempo of Abęl's vocal he has introduced an imperfection that you're never not going to hear when you listen to this. It's annoying as this is an almost perfect remix otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah, I love it, 21 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Can't Feel My Face (MP3 Download)
This is one of my favourite tracks and I listen to it all the time. I can't really work out why The Weeknd can't feel his face – does his girlfriend have an anaesthetising effect on him or does he really, really want to feel his own face up but can't because he can't keep his hands off his girlfriend? These things keep me up at night and bother me. Well, not really, but I do love the song.


Stardust

Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collaboration, 21 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Stardust (MP3 Download)
If you're thinking that Jean-Michel Jarre and Armin van Buuren could be a magical combination, then you are right – as evidenced by this uplifting and enjoyable track. It's more of a track to put your feet up and relax to than to actually dance to, but not every EDM track has to be a floorfiller and this is a great collaboration. Especially nice is about two-thirds of the way though, when you think that it's about to end, it picks up fresh again.

P.S. I wrote this review thinking I'd bought this from Amazon, but then found it was iTunes, so not a "verified purchase", but I thought I'd post it anyway.


Sony BSP60 Wireless Smart Bluetooth Speaker - Black
Sony BSP60 Wireless Smart Bluetooth Speaker - Black
Price: £207.60

3.0 out of 5 stars Endearing and intriguing at first, but will you really carry it with you from room to room?, 21 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With most smartphones acting like a more of a personal assistant than a piece of gadgetry, this interactive speaker seems at the same time both very advanced and almost paradoxically redundant. Almost like a grown up version of the Furby, it's designed with cuteness in mind and Sony are definitely hoping you will have some form of relationship with it. However, whilst a Furby can entertain near most anyone time after time with its quirky personality and dancing ability, a speaker on wheels, albeit a smartspeaker on wheels, is a novelty that I really can't see taking off. And talking of taking off, if this were a drone that followed you about (and who knows, in five or so years' time Sony may be selling just that), then all the useful voice controlled features might carry more weight as attraction for buying it. Unless you use it at your desk at work, chances are you are going to move about all day and, as you do, you will take your phone with you but not this speaker.

I don't doubt a lot of people will be tempted by all the features the BSP60 offers, but I also suspect that once the novelty wears off there will be a large fraction of those people left with buyer's remorse, fed up of carrying this item from room to room with them, or using it only a fraction of the time they thought they would.


AmazonBasics Poly Cotton Duvet Set with 1 Pillowcase, Single - Red Stripes
AmazonBasics Poly Cotton Duvet Set with 1 Pillowcase, Single - Red Stripes
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A comfortable (large) pillowcase and stripy duvet set, 13 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a set of one duvet cover and one pillowcase from the Amazon Basics range. They both have a design of red stripes on white, with the occasional larger stripe, larger gap and darker red stripe to help break up the pattern.

The duvet cover is big enough for an average single-sized duvet and it fastens up with four buttons at the end. Both the cover and the pillow case are made from a 2:1 mixture of cotton and polyester. If you use two pillows to sleep on, your initial thought would be why do they supply only one pillow case. The answer is that the pillow case is big enough for two pillows to fit inside it. Unless you are using brand new pillows, which can start off with a greater volume and then flatten a bit over time, you should not have a problem.

It is well made, good quality, and – most importantly – very comfortable.


Go Stationery Camden Floral Magazine File
Go Stationery Camden Floral Magazine File

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, 11 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a sturdy magazine file. I had expected it to be flat packed, but it comes as is, which means a larger box for transit but also for a steadier file, which can stand on its own without side support and will not easily tip over from the weight of a magazine or book leaning to one side. Its floral pattern is fairly unobtrusive, and the pink inside of the box catches the eye more. There is a metal name tag holder on the front but, at least in the one I received, no card so presumably you have to cut one to size yourself. The inside of the box seemed well made, with the outer cover glued well onto the pink interior.


Go Stationery Banksy A5 Man with Flowers Notebook
Go Stationery Banksy A5 Man with Flowers Notebook
Price: £3.50

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Banksy, 8 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This ruled notepad has really good quality paper. It is wire bound, making it easy to tear pages out if you need to. The Banksy design on the front is actually printed on a tough sheet of clear plastic, and is the same situation on the back. A lot of people will like this for the very fact that it is a Banksy design. It's not likely to ever become a collectors' item, being a mass produced notebook, but to many people it could be a desirable object anyway.

Go Stationery Shimmer A6 Gold Polka Dots Notebook - Pink
Price: £5.50

3.0 out of 5 stars "Could try harder", 8 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This little notebook has Mothers' Day Present or Young Daughter written all over it, although not literally because that would be weird. It is pocket sized and has a pink cover decorated with gold polka dots. The paper is good quality and when you write on one page it doesn't show all that much overleaf. I wasn't all that impressed with the flimsy and unimaginative cover and whilst another notebook by the makers of this has an elastic strip to keep it firmly shut when not in use, this one does not, where maybe it should have done.


Go Stationery Owls A5 Notebook - Teal
Go Stationery Owls A5 Notebook - Teal
Price: £7.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Owls, 8 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the kind of notebook you buy someone as a gift, and as such I will not waste your time by talking about the price, which you can see for yourself at the top of the page and make your own decision about. The notebook is A5 size and has rounded edges. That and the patchwork owl design on the front and back cover means it is probably designed for children. An elastic strip keeps the book closed when not in use. The paper is lightly ruled and is of good quality. Using a biro, it hardly made any impression on the page underneath and using a marker pen there was almost no seep-through. The inside front and inside back are pink with white polka dots. There are no perforations for tearing pages out, but if you're looking to tear pages out you're probably better suited with an economy notebook. As a gift, and as something meant to be looked after, this notebook is very appealing.
