4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent protection, 21 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First off, I had to go to the website to find out how to pull it apart as this real is constructed with purpose, to protect physically against all accidents and knocks, and to be childproof. It would take quite a child to work out how to open this little darling.
It is very, very solid, with layers of various materials to protect your precious Kindle. It has a built in screen saver which does not impair the touch screen facility.
It is unquestionably thick, and nowhere near as graceful as Amazon made Kindle screens, no question, it isn't in the same league at all and in fact there is no elegance in this at all, it resembles a workman's toolkit as much as anything, but if you need real protection for an expensive piece of kit, then this is the one you want.

4.0 out of 5 stars really nice case, 21 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely case in a beautiful colour, Royal, for a Kindle HD 7". A nice solid base that fits the HD 7" perfectly, and a lovely soft flap over lid that also can be folded back, and, if you wish into a convenient stand. It retains the slimness of the Kindle, and protects from dust and scratches. I really do wish though that they could standardise the measurements of each succeeding upgrade of Kindles though, as each one requires a brand new case, and they're far from cheap.

This is undoubtedly a gorgeous case, but maybe not for protection against excessive force or mistreatment, for which you would require an Otter box, which would physically protect your Kindle against just about everything, but is heavier and a great deal thicker and much less of a pleasure for just holding in your hand while reading, but would protect your Kindle against all bangs and drops and has it's own built in screen protector.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply superb, 21 Dec 2013

If you love middle eastern food then this is a must have. No pictures but well laid out and very clearly explained recipes. I have many cookbooks, quite a few on middle eastern and eastern Mediterranean food, and this one is right up there with the very best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent selection of recipes, 20 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love this book. Very good and varied recipes so redolent of the middle east, one can almost smell the heat and spices of the bazaars and tiny eating places with their rickety old tables and stools. The rice dishes with crispy brown crusts and lamb and vegetable stews with the highly scented spices are my absolute favourites. A great selection of wonderfully tasty recipes at a very reasonable price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor formatting for what looks like a great book, from a great distance, 19 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is incompatible on Macs and won't download, and on Kindle Fire you cannot adjust the font size, so you would need an electron microscope to read it.
Looks like there are some really great recipes on this, if it was only possible to actually read anything beyond squinting at the titles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another gripping Reich's novel to lock you down tight, 18 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reich's new teen series is also fodder for adults too. Do not pick up unless you are free to suspend all activity until you're finished. This time they've really gone and done it. Following the clues of an online treasure hunt, only unknowingly, this one has been designed just for them, and its lethal. Chance has left the nut house and as curious as all he'll. Ben is being difficult and distant,and Tory has far too much on her plate to give anything but all her thought to the immediate problems.
A solid addition to the series.


ThermaCare Therapeutic Heat Wraps for Pain Relief - Neck,Shoulder and Wrist -3 Wraps
ThermaCare Therapeutic Heat Wraps for Pain Relief - Neck,Shoulder and Wrist -3 Wraps

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful to have around, 12 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I sprained my wrist a couple of days ago, and after receiving this pack through Vine and waiting for a bad bout of back and neck ache with my spondylitis, I found an unexpected use to trial them.
Over 55s are warned against wearing them against the skin, so I wound one around my wrist over a tubular bandage. I was a little worried that they may be some sort of fiery hot chemical wrap that I may have to tear off, but the heat is in fact very gentle, and wrapped around my wrist and touching the outside it is comfortably warm as opposed to actually hot. I have been wearing it for half a day now, and the pain in my wrist has eased quite significantly, with the warmth and the extra binding support from the wrap. It is still very warm even now, maybe seven hours later.
I would recommend.

This review is from: Vanish Powerpowder 650 g (Grocery)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a brilliant product when you have smaller areas to clean and just can't be bothered going to all the trouble of dragging out the big carpet washer. It does an excellent job especially on high traffic areas that get really mucky.
