The News: A User's Manual by Alain de Botton
The News: A User's Manual by Alain de Botton

Some years ago, on the advice of a motivational guru, I was advised to stop watching the news as it would only depress me. By and large I have followed his advice, finding that if news is necessary to me it will somehow find me. I heard Alain de Boton being interviewed about this book on the radio, and thought it sounded very interesting. I don't think I've highlighted so many excerpts on my Kindle app for any book before. So many insights which I agreed with. I shall enjoy dipping into The Philosopher's Mail for interpretation of news stories in future.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
4.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting read, 17 Nov 2013
This was a book group set text for me, which I would probably not have chosen to read otherwise. It was perfectly paced and written with a really delicate and genuine treatment of a very difficult subject.
Panasonic Panasonic 52mm Lumix G Protective Filter by Panasonic

I bought this filter for my new Panasonic Lumix camera. I do tend to be a bit rough with my cameras, so always make sure the lens is protected before first use. This product does just that.
