Olympus SZ-31MR Digital Compact Camera - Black (16&hellip by Olympus

I like to take nice professional looking pictures, having come from a family of people interested in photography I know the basics of setting up a decent picture, but I'm not too great with the science behind it all, therefore I wanted a camera that would take beautiful pictures without too much technical skill on my part. I also really wanted a camera that charged at the mains so that I wouldn't have to worry about batteries.

This book had me captivated from the very first page. There was none of this boring 'getting to know the characters' that you have to trundle through before you can get into the story, you’re hit full on with the first story line, which throws you into the life of Anne, and guarantees you'll fall in love with her immediately!
I believed she was writing my life story, I passed the book to a friend who believed the same. She writes in such a way that addresses all of the issues we have all had to go through (gay women anyway) at some point. Coming to terms with sexuality, not believing you are one of “them”, not knowing how to interpret an intense friendship with a… Read more
