Collins Pocket Guide - Sea Shore of Britain and Europe
Collins Pocket Guide - Sea Shore of Britain and Europe
by Peter J. Hayward
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book, 10 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ha! You poor sap - assuming you want to buy this book! It is rare as hens teeth and no-body wants to sell theirs once they have one. With luck it will be re-printed. The drawings are much easier to use than photographs. If you have small people in your life that want to know what all the creepycrawlies in the rock pools are called: then this is the book to take with you - inside a waterproof reading bag - when splodging about on a beach.

British Library Desk Diary 2012: Historic Maps in Detail
by British Library
Edition: Calendar
Price: £12.90

5.0 out of 5 stars A diary where the pictures are important, 10 Dec 2013

I found this a magical diary. Every day I would use a magnifying glass to study the maps rather than remind myself where I was to be that day. A really enjoyable diary

Collins Bird Guide

5.0 out of 5 stars The best bird book for serious starters, 10 Dec 2013

This review is from: Collins Bird Guide (Hardcover)
This is a bird book that means business. The print is small as are the pictures but the quality is excellent so all the detail shows. An edition divided into a series of slim volumes with a larger picture would be a serious indulgent luxury item! Now I just need better eyesight and more patience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another really good boot, 10 Dec 2013

Tough, sturdy comfortable and waterproof. What more could I ask for? Dry well and brush clean; waterproof spray now and then to keep water beading on the surface.

Teva Women's Hurricane 3 W's Butterfly Scene Black Sandal 6577 4.5 UK, 6 US

5.0 out of 5 stars the best all-terrain sandal, 10 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spend a lot of time sploshing about in cold water (don't ask) and these sandals are used for summer work. Yet, a quick dry and they are also perfect for summer evenings in the garden or at a BBQ or strolling along the back lanes as dusk falls and the blackbird sings goodnight

Light, tough and comfortable. Waterproof. End of winter I dry them out really well, brush thoroughly and re-spray the outside so they stay relatively clean.

4.0 out of 5 stars I want tickets, 10 Dec 2013

The way to travel as it used to be. Some lines are still there. The whole book has the feeling of travelling overnight on the Riviera Express from Paddington to Penzance.

A cheerful book; I shall never be able to navigate through England again without putting meanings to previously innocent villages.
