Economics in One Lesson: The Shortest and Surest W&hellip by Henry Hazlitt
Really enjoyed this book, easy to read as you don't need to have studied economics to fully understand his 'lesson'. You may not agree with everything he says in the book but his arguments are interesting and persuasive. I think this should be compulsory reading for every politician with a test at the end to see if they understand it. Perhaps then they will understand, that being in debt is bad, being in credit is good. Or, as the old saying goes, Income 1, spending 99p (happiness), spending 1.01 (misery). Even if you are a follower of Keynesian economics this book will give you something to think about. What surprised me was although written a long time ago it is still relevant to the… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Paperwhite, 7 Aug 2014
Already had a kindle touch, but wanted to upgrade to the paperwhite to read in bed without having a bedside light on. You can adjust the brightness to your taste, and it is easy to read both in the dark, and in bright sunlight. Only downside for me is that on my old kindle I could read about four books on one charge, with the paperwhite it needs charging after one book, even if the light is switched off completely. Might be I have a duff battery !, as Amazon seems to suggest that it should last nearly as long as the kindle touch on one charge.

5.0 out of 5 stars APC SurgeArrest, 7 Aug 2014
Managed to get this for 9.99 which I thought was very good value for a five socket surge protector, as it is better value than some non-surge extensions. Design is excellent, not too bulky, is well made, and the 180 degree rotating power cord is a good idea. The cord management guide is also a good idea but to be honest, I don't use that myself as all my cables are routed through a cable management system on my pc desk. It also has a building wiring status led which lights up red if your wall socket is not grounded correctly. Obviously, cannot comment on how effective it is at surge protection, but it does come with up to 35,000 damage cover. Definitely recommend it.
