Free-Standing Bamboo Towel Holder 40 x 105 x 27 cm
Free-Standing Bamboo Towel Holder 40 x 105 x 27 cm
Price: £23.96

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as expected, 3 Mar. 2016

Good design, exactly what I was looking for. Fairly strong and sturdy. The shelf at the bottom is handy for stacking folded towels. Because of the shape of the legs it scoots right up to the radiator, saving a bit of space.

Andoer® Photo Album Scrapbook 15 Sheets Handmade Photo Frame Book Paris Eiffel DIY with Sticker

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea but disappointing and slightly damaged, 23 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived with a cut across the front of the outer holder - presumably from a stanley knife. I'd read previous reviews, so expectations were low and I couldn't be bothered to return/re-order in the busy run up to Xmas, so I kept it, thinking the album itself was OK. It was only when I'd already put in some photos that I realised that the photo album itself was also damaged. Its a shame as its a nice album. Its very home-made looking, which is what I wanted, but therefore not very robust. Fits one standard 4x6 photo per page, but I printed my photos smaller.
One other thing to note is that the photo corners that are included are multicoloured and don't really go with the design of the album, so I bought clear photo corners instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but beware if you like a softer mattress, 23 Oct. 2015

Although sturdy and easy to use, we are finding the mattress a little too thin to get a good night's sleep. But we are using it a lot - for one off nights, it's probably
OK. If you are on the heavier side, or have back problems, you might want to go for a better quality mattress. Or, like we do, create your own mattress topper with a folded duvet! Glad we went for the slightly wider bed, it does feel wide enough and less like a camp bed.


Sawn-Off Tales (Salt Modern Fiction)
Sawn-Off Tales (Salt Modern Fiction)
by David Gaffney
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Straight to the point, 23 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this style of short fiction. Although they are all very similar length and the attraction of them is that they are a very short stories it does become a little repetitive after a while. A book to dip in and out of. Some lovely ideas, well executed. Entertaining read. A good intro to short/flash/micro/quick fiction.


May We Be Forgiven
May We Be Forgiven

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book, 23 Jun. 2015

This review is from: May We Be Forgiven (Paperback)
After a shaky start, ended up loving this book. It starts with such pace, and at first, dislikeable characters that you wonder what the hell is going on and where its all going. What feels like the whole plot of a novel plays out in the first thirty pages. But the pace is what carries you forward and draws you in. Some dark humour. I thought it was very well written. Couldn't put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, insightful, gripping, 13 April 2015

This review is from: Zeitoun (Paperback)
Excellent example of gripping non fiction. I thought it was well written, informative and an easy read - flew through it in one weekend. It's rare to find a page turner on such a complex topic, but by focussing on the experience of one family the book achieves something a more wide ranging attempt would have struggled to. Thought provoking and moving.
