5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best reads ever!, 2 Jan 2014
Everyone should read Gullivers Travels. Bought for my daughter to read. If your only experience of Gullivers Travels is the popular image of his visit to Lilliput ....or even worse the Jack Black film (aaaargh!!) ....then you must read this intelligent and thoroughly entertaining book. Cannot recommend enough. You will not be disappointed! And if you thought a yahoo was a search engine you should definitely get reading!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 2 Jan 2014
For price the cover is very good. It protects the Nook perfectly and is a good fit. Thoigh I wish I hadn't chosen the brown cover for my husband as it is a fairly unpleasant cheap looking light tan colour. ( Mine is red...much nicer choice!). However I cannot complain as it does as promised and looks after the Nook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Be careful., 2 Jan 2014
The hair extensions were of a good quality. Hence 4 *. The colour was not as I expected and a request for return and refund was accepted. So far all is good. However although my return was signed for on delivery the seller said it was not signed for by her despite being the sole person involved in the business and initially refused a refund until I instigated a complaint through Amazon A-Z guarantee. Have had full refund now but it almost stretched out past the cut off dates for being dealt with. So while I would recommend the product from initial glimpse, I was a bit unnerved by the return difficulties. It may of course be a genuine mistake, and a one off occurrence. However if there is a possible issue with others not involved with the seller signing for returned goods it should be highlighted and dealt with.

Not sure why people are complaining it is not leather. Does it matter? For the price I paid I am very pleased. All the holes and the camera are exposed to be able to do their job and it is a well made. It works well as an upright and low angle stand and protects the tablet. I bought the purple one and would definitely recommend as a functionable and well made product. No complaints or moans whatsoever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Motivating., 2 Jan 2014
My students - KS3 and 4 - love these. Especially the pink ones! They are a quick reward and motivator. Use all except the parent signatue one. They are a bit smudgy while they dry and as they are quite large dont always come out whole if you have a messy pile of books you are marking as need the page to be flat. However to shimmy around the classroom for some speedy marking they are invaluable and students beg for them!! And handed back books are trawled for the pink 'excellent'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!, 2 Jan 2014
In this age of impossible feats of recording and justifying everything this little gadget is worth every penny. Alongside my old fashioned library date stamp my KS3 and KS4 students get a reminder of the valuable ( but seemingly invisible) feedback and help they are given. Remember - every child matters! Of course as a double bounus during book scrutiny it makes you look amazing!! Ink does come through page to other side - but not a big issue if strategically placed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful gadget!, 2 Jan 2014
Agree with previous reviewer..great stamp but easy to put in upside down. And believe me students complain!! The ink is quite fierce and can be seen on other side of page. However I am pleased with my purchase and use it loads.


Light on Lucrezia: (Lucrezia Borgia)
Light on Lucrezia: (Lucrezia Borgia)
by Jean Plaidy
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.80

3.0 out of 5 stars Variable, 2 Jan 2014
I do enjoy Jean Plaidy novels, and the lives of famous characters from history are explained in an easily digestible way. However in some parts of the book there is considerable detail, but towards the end there seems to be a massive clean up of loose ends with many of the major and influential players dieing over a few pages, alongside the birth of lots of new babies and then she dies. It just seems as if she ran out of pages and had to still finish the story. I would still say I was glad I read the book, but it is inconsistent and I felt a little cheated at the end.
