5.0 out of 5 stars A Future Good Read, 25 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Help (Paperback)
The book looks in excellent condition - I had already read about half of it, in a copy in a holiday-let in France, so I now look forward to its being my next bedtime-read, starting today, as it happens.

I've fortunately not had to use it yet, which is good - it looks convenient, and is certainly not expensive.


Spectrum Guide to Malawi
Spectrum Guide to Malawi

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've learned a lot about Malawi recently through a sick friend - he is largely responsible for the production & format of this excellent guide, and it's a tribute to his & his business-partner's hard work & imaginative approach to "selling" a country.


The Colour of Heraldry
The Colour of Heraldry

Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the ticket!, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Colour of Heraldry (Hardcover)
I've already reviewed this for the seller - as I needed it quickly, as a prize, I had to put up with a couple of pages that certainly didn't live up to the description of its "good" state, so I had to give my own copy to the prize-winner.

This review is from: The River In Reverse (Audio CD)
Got it because of seeing one of the numbers in a Blues programme on TV, so a new addition to our collection.

Exactly as described - nothing else to say - why should I do that? - is that not enough for you?

4.0 out of 5 stars Rewards hard work, 29 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not really a beginners' book, as you need a fair bit of understanding of grammar in general, and especially of Latinate or even other inflected languages to work through it well - I have O-level Latin, & A-level Franch, with a smattering of Italian, but it did require a fair bit of mind-stretching. If you're prepared to do that (& I am as someone interested in the subject because of its connection with Heraldry, my particular anorak), it's fine.
The price was good, as also delivery condition and time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epson EB-S02H Projector (3000:1, 2600 lumens, 800 x 600 SVGA, 18 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once you forget the massive manual, and if you've used a computer, relatively easy to put into use, and a very satisfying result on screen - for my meeting-room uses, gives excellent image from two metres away. Nice and light to carry, especially with its included carry bag. The USB facility with memory stick most handy, so easy to convert PowerPoint into Jpegs, just plug in, and no need for the PC link. Must try a sound link with DVD videos via laptop, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Duronic FPS100/43 - Floor Projector Screen - 100" Portable..., 18 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality, as far as I can see with limited use as yet.

A bit big for normal house storage or meeting-room use, or for my standard size SW car (the medium size not available when I ordered), but easy to use & surprisingly easy to carry once out of the car! Improvements have been made on the original materials,it seems. The illustrations are not accurate - there is no black on the screen - all white, head to foot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eventually very useful, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roxio Creator 2012 (PC) (DVD-ROM)
Difficult to use at first - the advice from Roxio Customer Service advice didn't seem to fit what came up on screen, but a bit of personal exploration found out how best to use it with the up-to-date laptop I bought it for. The previous version that came with the previous desktop PC was more customer-obvious, and I think certainly a bit quicker. But ultimately efficient enough, with reliable results in making "finalised" CDs/DVDs that are usable on all media that take them. The active desktop icon is handy.
