Suggs and the City: Journeys Through Disappearing London
Suggs and the City: Journeys Through Disappearing London
Price: 5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Ol' London Town..., 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderful read reminiscing about places so familiar to so many. Suggs has a very raconteur way about his writing.

This review is from: Who is Tom Ditto? (Kindle Edition)
Not as good as Charlotte Street also by Danny Wallace but an enjoyable and compelling read. Nearly missed my stop a couple of times as I was reading on the way to work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle convert, 27 Dec 2013
Until December 2013 I was using an e-reader manufactured by another well known company. I've become a kindle convert - mainly because of the ease with which books can be purchased and downloaded to the device. I've realised since owning a kindle that kindle's main competitor format is much clunkier and definitely more cumbersome to purchase and download titles due in the main to be reliant on requiring its customers to be subscribed to both Adobe DRM approved account and a suitable PC based connection to back up and occasionally transfer titles. My only gripe with the kindle is that the button operated page turning feature is not as conveniently placed as it's competitors particularly for the one handed strap hanging commuter. Otherwise a must have for any bibliophile.


Heads and Straights: The Circle Line (Penguin Underground Lines)
Heads and Straights: The Circle Line (Penguin Underground Lines)
by Lucy Wadham
Edition: Paperback
Price: 3.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Celebration of growing up and not about the Circle Line, 17 Sep 2013
Like the other reviewers, I think Lucy Wadham is a good writer. What the book isn't is a direct celebration of London's Underground transport system which the series of titles was produced to commemorate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic classic point and shoot camera, 13 Jun 2013
Although the technology of this 2008 vintage from Nikon has been technologically surpassed, I thought I would post this review five years on as it is still a great little camera. As it uses AA sized batteries rather than a product specific rechargeable, it might be more expensive to run. However, I've never lost a photo opportunity because the battery is out of charge as I can simply replace them. It has a view finder so that people who prefer to take pictures in a more traditional (pre-digital) way rather than trying to compose a photo via a screen can do so. If you're reading this review because you already own one of these cameras and are looking for a camera case for this classic, I would recommend the Lowepro Apex 30AW.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic little camera case for the Nikon Coolpix P50, 13 Jun 2013
Although I didn't buy this product from Amazon, I thought I would post this review as for some time I had been looking for a suitable case for an older generation (2008) compact point and shoot digital camera that is 9.45 cm wide or long, 6.6 cm tall and 4.4 cm thick. And I found it after almost a year's searching! The Lowepro Apex 30AW is that camera case.


100 New Maths Framework Lessons for Year 3
100 New Maths Framework Lessons for Year 3
by Ann Montague-Smith
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars 100 Maths Framework Lessons for Year 3, 4 Feb 2013
I agree with the most helpful critical reviewer's comments. The possible fundamental flaw in the format of the book is that 100 lessons takes the reader / teacher up to the February Half Term. Having said that I bought the book as it has some good ideas and with the accompanying CD of printable resources being Smart Notebook Interactive Whiteboard compatible, it is a useful title - won't necessarily save your Sundays from planning but a useful point to start from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belkin Pleated Sleeve, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In a word excellent. Well made and fits the iPad 2 accessorised with an iPad Smart cover perfectly. It has an outside zip pocket useful for carrying the USB cable and headphones as well as a stylus or iPhone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Scribble Marker pen, 17 Nov 2012

The nib is just a little too soft and spongy for the pen to be used as a stylus for the iPad 2 by children using learning to write apps.


1 Out Of 10: From Downing Street Vision To Classroom Reality
1 Out Of 10: From Downing Street Vision To Classroom Reality
by Peter Hyman
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars 1 Out of 10 for another political memoir, 31 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An OK read but not a title I would be telling everybody I meet. Peter Hyman was previously on the staff at 10 Downing Street when Tony Blair was Prime Minister. In a "Road to Damascus" moment, Mr Hyman decides to switch career and join the teaching profession. The book is written at the time that he must have been preparing for his PGCE or something of the sort as Mr Hyman is currently (January 2012) Deputy Head at a Secondary School in West London and about to become Chief of a Free School in East London. My most memorable part of the book is when Mr Hyman sees how disjointed political vision is from the ground truth. For a politican to say that education must improve measured by exam results is very reliant on students who might not have the best attendance record passing exams.
