Perfect large size and potentially a great gift.as it comes boxed

5.0 out of 5 stars Ikea assembly made easier, 31 Jan 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The back had come off one of my Billy bookcases. Hey presto, zap, zap, zap. Done and dusted. Really easy to line the stapler up to the edge of the backing board, went through it like butter into whatever it is Ikea use behind

Next to the dining room chair for repairing webbing . Bish bosh.

Quite like the green colour - my last staple tacker was a matt red one that one of the grown up children borrowed to take to art college. This feels just as substantial and behaves as well if not better

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously expensive - but I love it, 8 Jan 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have had just about every type of Kindle except for the Fire and this case is just dandy for the Kindle Paper White.

It does make the Kindle much bulkier but most of the time for me, that is not an issue as most of the time I am reading it on the tube.

What I want is mega protection from dropping it and the ability to find the Kindle.

Love the white cover of the one I have as it means I can find it in the stygian depths of my handbag

The Kindle fits inside very snuggly with little elastic corners like those you used to see in photograph albums.

There is an elastic band that goes round the whole device to keep it shut whilst it is in your bag. I infinitely prefer these as I was told, rightly or wrongly, that the magnetic closures interrupt your Kindle in some way.

You can also use the band to hold the cover shut whilst you are reading it and there is this strange puch that you can slip your hand into as well whilst you are reading

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Periodically I suffer from major stiffness and pain the the shoulder. This product really helps me to carry on living and working a normal way without having to rely too much on ibuprofen.

They stick on well and help relax tense muscles and really do stay warm for a long time.


Games Without Rules
Games Without Rules
by Tamim Ansary
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 17.09

5.0 out of 5 stars Context is everything, 27 Dec 2013
This review is from: Games Without Rules (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ansary, unlike most writers on the subject who have a very western centric view, starts with Afghanistan history and then looks at its relations with the outside world.

Thankfully not written in 'academicese' this is an excellent and highly readable history. Looking at the country from the 18th century and then through to 2012 it gives you a real sense of the futility of the invasions and the impact on Afgahnistan and the countries doing the invading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 27 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I find this rather better than the Waitrose dish washer one. The glasses are less streaky and for some strange reason those little ground pieces do not seem to adhere to the cups. Note to self must remember to rinse mugs when using real coffee.

The packaging on this occasion was rather less impressive. One bottle slipped out of the packaging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rather a marmite colour, 28 Nov 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Over the years I have lost so many pens and ball pens - hence the choice of this one.

The colour is a little tacky, particularly next to the gold of the barrel, but I hardly think anyone is going to walk off with it by mistake. Also, I can always find it at the bottom of my mainly black lined bags particularly as the barrel is still very shiny.

I would say that the colour in the picture on Amazon is misleading as it looks very orange. Think yellow gold and you have a better idea.

I like the shape of the pen and the weight feels good in the hand.

For a ball pen it is silky smooth when you write


Tides of War
Tides of War
by Stella Tillyard
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.07

3.0 out of 5 stars A little lumpy at times, 28 Nov 2013
This review is from: Tides of War (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really wanted to like this book Stella Tillyard really knows her stuff as a historian.

This novel almost managed to pull off the trick of mixing the fictional with real life historical characters. Maybe it was because there were so many varied story lines: women and their relationship with money, Harriet and her relationship with science, the Napoleonic wars, social history, medical history ......

The result is a fair amount of interesting information but there is a lack of narrative.

It may not be a fair comparison but Patrick O'Brian was pretty spot on from the first of his Aubrey books as was Pat Barker with the Regeneration Trilogy.


Rapesco Stapler, Executive Desktop Stapler - Spinna 717
Rapesco Stapler, Executive Desktop Stapler - Spinna 717
Price: 12.80

5.0 out of 5 stars The best stapler I have ever used, 26 Nov 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For what ever reason staplers and I have nee got on. Until I got hold of this one.

It does loads of pages - well at least 40
It even manages to look good with only 3 or 4 pages.
It does not jam.
It is easy to change the staples.

If I were as rich as Victor Remington I'd buy the company.
