Ausperity: Live the Life You Want for Less by Lucy Tobin
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I discovered the book after seeing a recommendation in a magazine. Like most people I need to budget and like most people I look at my incomings and outgoings and wonder where to start.

I found the book very accessible with lots of lots of good ideas. I downloaded the kindle version.

There a lot of 'light bulb' moments.

I've already gifted three paperback copies of this to friends.
The Prince: A Selection Novella (The selection) by Kiera Cass
..'The Prince' sheds quite a bit of light of the events at the begining of 'The Selection' and gives you a Prince Maxon eye view, as well as knowlage the narrator of 'The Selection' does not have.

While letting you see certain events through Prince Maxon's perspective and narration you also see more of the King and Queen who are very much in the background in 'The Selection'.

I would definately recommend reading 'The Selection' first and then moving to this novella prior to reading 'The Elite'.

Charity Shopping and The Thrift Lifestyle by Lettice Wilkinson

1.0 out of 5 stars Was expecting more, 17 April 2011
This book is a very well researched directory of Charity Shops across the UK.

Based on the title and Amazon Review I was expecting something more than this. The book is not a bad book but doesn't really go into the 'Thrift Lifestyle' in any great detail and while the directory of shops (which is all of the book past the introduction) is interesting I was expecting information on how to identify well made/vintage clothes from the review as well as much much more Thift detail. Perhaps India Knight's near definiatibe 'Thrift Book' has spoiled me.
