Dualit 2 Slice Toaster Stainless Steel 20245 by Dualit
2.0 out of 5 stars Timer's out for Dualit!, 12 July 2014
Adequate toaster with appallingly cheap timer, which lasted a couple of years. Avoid
Dowland: Art Of Melancholy [Iestyn Davies, Thomas &hellip ~ Iestyn Davies

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive recording!, 21 April 2014
I've recently had the chance to hear both Iestyn Davies and Thomas Dunford perform this set of songs with lute (and lute solos) at Wigmore Hall, and Ian Bostridge and Liz Kenny a very similar set at the Sheldonian. Both pairs were superb, of course, but Davies and Dunford had the edge in control, subtlety and emotional power. Now wonder this is #1 bestseller on cassette!
Brasenose: The Biography of an Oxford College by Joseph Mordaunt Crook
1.0 out of 5 stars Read Buchan instead, 17 April 2014
As a good read, and a reasonably good history of BNC's first 400 years, Buchan's work (5 on Kindle) is much to be preferred. Crook's work is excellent if you want to find out more about the personalities of the dining and sporting clubs of the college.
