In My Own Words:
I am so sorry but I am unable to review any self-published books. I have far too many books I have searched out and bought waiting to be read, so my to be read pile contains 6 months of reading material.

As requests from self-published authors happen, despite this disclaimer, on an almost daily basis, I am unable even to reply with the information above, to explain why, with regret, I can't re… Read more

NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Oblo by KRUPS Coffee Capsule M&hellip by Krups
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've long been eyeing pod machines, havering, wedging, ruminating, should I, shouldn't I, as I continue with my various arcane and sometimes lengthy coffee rituals : French Press, AeroPress, Bialetti/Moka Pot, ibrik for Turkish Coffee, hand grinding with ceramic burr machine for adjustable grind size, good old fashioned jug-and-filter, and even a much loved (dead now, and discontinued) De Longhi hot-water-integral-filter drip through.

Bodies of Light by Sarah Moss
I'm at a loss to know where to start to adequately praise this excellent, layered novel from Sarah Moss, who has the stunning ability to write novels `about deep and complex stuff' , engage with both the heart and the head, create real, properly dimensional, complex characters, write beautifully and unindulgently, and do all this within the discipline of a pacey narrative drive

Moss's territory is the complex lives of girls and women, caught between their own personal identity, their calling, vocation and creativity, and the counter-pull, whether of a society which limits and curtails women, or the counter-pull imposed by the biology of mothering and the fierce demands of… Read more
