The Apple Revolution: Steve Jobs, the countercultu&hellip by Luke Dormehl
I like reading about real events and people and I want to hear the human side of the story rather than just the story itself, and this book certainly doesn't disappoint.

I love Apple products, like the Apple design-led and minimalistic approach but have always been aware that the charisma and drive of Steve Jobs, wonderful as it was always had a flip side that seemed in many ways to be opposite to the public perception.

Eric Carle's Dream Snow: Pop-Up Advent Calendar by Eric Carle
I bought three of these for elderly relatives that lived alone.

Two of them absolutely loved it, one liked it.

It gave us something to talk about, something Christmassy for their home and something for them to look forward to doing every day in the run up to Christmas.

It was a great present for them and we all had fun with them - I was really impressed by the final product.

Excellent.
