Twinned by Alice Ann Galloway
Twinned by Alice Ann Galloway
'Twinned' by first-time author Alice Ann Galloway is a self-published novel that could easily be dismissed as yet another example of the burgeoning glut of 'supernatural romance' books the 'Twilight' series has spawned. To do so, however, would be to do an injustice to the book. While there is a supernatural element to this book and romance is perpetrated, 'Twinned' is nowhere near as by-the-numbers as you might expect. The supernatural aspect is more spiritual than superhuman, with nary a vampire or werewolf in sight. The romance isn't as predictable as the standard boy-meets-girl fare, either; it's more involved and a lot darker.

I am one of those thousands of people who never thought they'd switch to an e-reader as I've been in love with paper books my entire life, I love the smell of old books, etc., etc., yadda-yadda-yadda.

In recent years, however, reading has become more difficult and it isn't unusual for it to take me… Read more

'The Absent-Minded Professor' is possibly the best of all the Disney live action movies from the 1960s and fans of this type of movie will undoubtedly love it. However, this particular release is not in the original cinematic aspect ratio but is rather a badly cropped pan and scan version. In addition to this, the movie is not presented here in its original black and white, but is a fake-looking recolourised version. Not a problem if, like me, you're willing to switch your T.V. to black and white when you watch it, but possibly irritating otherwise.

All in all, this is a great movie, and I love it enough to buy it even in this slightly butchered form when the black and white… Read more
