Marware Eco-Flip Genuine Leather Cover for Kindle, Black (fits Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle and Kindle Touch)
Price: 29.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little case., 28 Feb 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Rather than opening like a book would, this case flips over like a spiral bound notebook, which may not be to everyone's taste. The advantage of this is you can prop it open and read it hands free. It doesnt feel heavy at all but does still feel sturdy enough to protect my kindle. It is held closed by a sturdy elastic strip. This is a simple design that works well and does its job and is neat enough to fit into my handbag with no problems. Worth its price.

Marware jurni Kindle Cover, Black (fits Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle and Kindle Touch)

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and strong, 28 Feb 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This case will protect your kindle, no doubts about that. It is a sturdy case and feels 'well built'. The kindle is easily fit into the case, is a snug fit and feels secure. There is a zipped pocket on the outside but I'm not sure how useful this is given its very small size. The negative for me is that it's a little too bulky for fitting into my handbag or a coat pocket. It comes down to personal choice but I prefer something a little 'sleeker' and lighter. For anyone who doesn't mind a little bulk then this is a very good choice of case and worth the price.


Pampers Baby Dry Size 4+ (Maxi +) Giga Pack 124 Nappies
Pampers Baby Dry Size 4+ (Maxi +) Giga Pack 124 Nappies

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant., 28 Feb 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although Pampers are not the cheapest nappy on the market they have to be one of the best for quality. These were tried on a very active 8 months old boy who usually ends up with some 'leakage' overnight. Not with these!! They fit beautifully, no gaping anywhere and no 'rubbing' or chafing. He was put to bed at 8pm as usual and woke at 6am still dry to touch. The nappy was heavy and obviously had been wet but babys skin was dry to touch....no dampness at all and his sleepsuit was also completely dry. I never thought I would rave about a nappy but I have to say these are brilliant and well worth investing in.


The Heir Of Night: The Wall of Night: Book One
The Heir Of Night: The Wall of Night: Book One
by Helen Lowe
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.86

4.0 out of 5 stars standard fantasy fare, 21 Nov 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The background to this book is nothing new in fantasy; there is the usual youngster who is to save the kingdom which is in peril. Having said that, it is not a bad read just not original enough to be a really good book. As other reviewers have noted, it reads almost like a YA fiction at times. If you are prepared for that and to have a fairly lightweight read then this is the book for you. There is enough style in the writing to keep the interest and the characters are developed enough to make you care what happens, just don't expect too much.


Orbus (Spatterjay 3)
Orbus (Spatterjay 3)
by Neal Asher
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but....., 20 Nov 2012
This review is from: Orbus (Spatterjay 3) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Neal Asher is a first rate writer, no doubts there, but this didn't quite entertain the way his previous books have.This may be because he decided to write in the first person....not something I usually mind but in this case it seemed to 'jar'. That aside it is still a good read and fans of his work will find much to enjoy. This book revisits Captain Orbus and the realm of the Prador kingdom and Polity but is set in space rather than on Spatterjay. It is certainly a high action read....battles galore and delivered in Ashers usual offbeat style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for complete beginners, 20 Nov 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although this is a well presented DVD it is not for a total beginner as some of the excercises are quite difficult and are more suitable for someone more experienced in Pilates. It is a tough workout so could help with weight loss I suppose but you'd have to be pretty dedicated to following this programme regularly. My physiotherapist daughter tried this DVD and found it hard work although she has been taking classes in Pilates.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the effort., 13 Aug 2011
The downloaded sample was only one page long which should of told me something but as the 'book' was only 86 pence I thought it would be worth risking and looked forward to some humerous anecdotes. What a disappointment!! Normally I wouldn't bother with reviewing something so cheap and saying it was poor value for money but this wouldn't have been worth having had it been free. Granted it is described as an essay but I think that description is being over generous and both my husband and myself had read it within 10 minutes....that is how short it is. There is one brief story of a patient with diarrhoea that is not in the least entertaining, followed by a lot of links to the authors pages. Finally there is an even briefer tale of how patients thought she looked too young to be a medic. That is the book in its entirety. The only recommendation I could make is "avoid spending your money" and if I could of given it zero stars I would have....and I have never done that before.


Glamour : Women, History, Feminism
Glamour : Women, History, Feminism
by Carol Dyhouse
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Glamour from a different angle, 30 Nov 2010
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Carol Dyhouse has managed to produce a book that is not only useful and accurate for any student of social history but is also lively and interesting enough to appeal to the more casual reader.She looks at what defines 'glamour', looking at fashion, make up, actresses, perfume etc but manages to keep a well balanced view of her subject. This is no feminist tirade or sexist text but a study of what glamour is and how women have 'used' it to their own ends....it certainly made me look at my perfume obsession from a different angle.
The book has lots of illustrations to highlight and enhance the subject and they certainly add to the 'readability' of this book. Recommended for anyone interested in the subject.


The Knitter's Year
The Knitter's Year
by Debbie Bliss
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 15.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick knits, 30 Nov 2010
This review is from: The Knitter's Year (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Most knitters will be familiar with Debbie Bliss patterns and will find nothing to disappoint in this book. The patterns are clear and easily understood and, although I have only knit a few from the book, so far I have found no errors.
As it implies on the cover, there are patterns to suit every season from cosy scarf and gloves or those January days through to christmas ornaments, All the patterns are quick to knit and use Debbie Bliss's lovely yarns (they are easily substituted though for those who prefer other makes). The book is filled with gorgeous colour photographs that show very clearly what the finished article will look like. There are also some very useful tips for less experienced knitters.
So whether you are looking to make a beautiful, lined summer tote bag or a cheerful pair of fingerless gloves, a snuggly scarf or a bag for your pegs, you are sure to find lots in here to get your needles clicking,

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little book, 17 July 2009
This review is from: The Willoughbys (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As other reviewers have said already, Lemony Snicket springs to mind with this book and it is clear where the author got her ideas from. However, children are not going to be so critical...they just enjoy a good story and that's what they will get with this. Ms Lowry has written a witty and clever tale although some of the witticisms may be lost on younger readers. It was a joy to read and I think is one of those books that will appeal to all age groups.
