Creative ZEN X-Fi3 8GB Touch MP3 Player with Bluet&hellip by Creative

I was given this diminutive MP3 player for Christmas – my own choice. And it was bought in November, but not opened of course until Christmas Day! (See the other reviews about wrapping and instructions!)

It was awful.

• There’s no interface with iTunes.
• The SD card took an age to register with all its music every time I switched the device on. (Yes, I was using one of their “allowed” SD cards.)
• The Bluetooth was intermittent.
• The controls were fiddly (it’s too small for biggish fingers) and only partially touchscreen – a bit of a con
• And to cap it all, the player froze regularly and would only recover if I switched it off and on again… Read more
The Second Amendment #1 (Crime, legal thriller (ac&hellip by John Matthews

I thought that this one looked like a good read. Many of the reviews were good, so I downloaded it! But ... I only got as far as the third page (or was it the second?) when I gave up. The English style and sentence structure were so bad that I couldn't bring myself to read any further. You have been warned!!!!
The Sunlit Summit: The Life of W. H. Murray by Robin Lloyd-Jones
5.0 out of 5 stars A great read!!!!, 18 Oct 2013
I bought this book for reading when I had a few days with a lot of travelling by air and on ferries! It couldn't have been a better choice. I have long been a great admirer of W H Murray. It was his two classics "Mountaineering in Scotland" and "Undiscovered Scotland" that inspired me into mountaineering and rock-climbing years ago!

This biography is a brilliant culmination of much research and that research has been amply repaid. The book is detailed, highly readable, carefully researched, and a wonderful companion to Murray's own autobiography. The notes at the end of each chapter, the appendices (in the book and online) make almost as good reading!

Thank you, Robin… Read more
