In My Own Words:
Currently the "Library and Learning Resource Centre Manager" at Deansfield High School in Wolverhampton, which basically means librarian, so I know my books.

I'm a big time video games fan with a thing for Nintendo at the moment. I own a DS, PSP, Wii and XBox 360; I eventually owned every manufacturers console in the last generation and am most of the way to doing it again this gen. I run a we… Read more

Nintendo Handheld Console 3DS XL - Pikachu Yellow:&hellip by Nintendo

This product arrives without any means of functioning. Nintendo have hidden a tiny message about this on the packaging but it appears (almost understandably given how much Nintendo don't really want you to see it) to have completely passed Amazon by as far as I can tell.

Sometimes from the difference in expectations and sometimes just in what his character thinks should be normal and the… Read more
Blockade Billy: WITH Morality: Contains the Chilli&hellip by Stephen King
2 of 3 people found the following review helpful
Following in the footsteps of "The girl who loved Tom Gordon" (a little... well it revolves around Kings most beloved sport: Baseball) "Blockade Billy" is essentially a boys own sports story with an adult edge of mystery. If you're put off by the whole "baseball" aspect, don't be, the story is about people and the baseball is kept fairly simple so even if you don't understand every single sports term used you'll get the idea of what's happening without any trouble.

"Morality" in some ways is more mainstream King and in some ways also not the mainstream King, but the back street King, the King who fans who've read everything will recognise and wonder why other people don't see it… Read more
