This review is from: EL PAÍS (App)
As a student of Spanish I find newspapers very useful as vocabulary aids and as general language aids. This free app gives me access to current Spanish news.

Excellent for protecting the Kindle Fire 7" touch screen. Be advised that it isn't intended for all Kindle models, but it fits the Kindle 7" like the proverbial glove. Some teeth-clenching concentration is needed so give yourself about fifteen minutes to fit the protector: take care when fitting and be prepared to sit at a table in good light. The pack includes a spare protector, a cleaning cloth for the screen, and a small plastic card to smooth down the protector as you fit it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A handy guide for the mature driver, 4 Jan. 2016

As a mature motorist and a member of the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists), I found this guide very handy. Concisely written, it gives plenty of common sense advice on driving.

A useful tablet, like most tablets, limited by not having a proper keyboard, but perfectly adequate for what I want to do with it, e.g. reading e-books or documents, checking e-mail, downloading things. The app store is good because it give access to Amazon Underground, a collection of free apps which includes Office Suite (talking of Office, users of OpenOffice will be disappointed to find that you can't download the Windows version). I haven't examined everything on the Fire yet, but the touch screen is quite sensitive - I recommend getting a screen protector and a carrying case - and the battery, so far, has given good service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another use for night driving lenses, 29 Dec. 2014

These work very well in night driving, and are also good for computer users who suffer from glare. They reduce headlights to a tolerable yellow colour, and reduce the glare of computer screens. In fact, it's the computer that I use mine for, more than night driving.


Sidney Chambers and The Shadow of Death (Grantchester Mysteries Book 1)
Sidney Chambers and The Shadow of Death (Grantchester Mysteries Book 1)
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great period atmosphere, 30 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got on to this series after watching the ITV adaptation and was favourably struck by the literary quality of the stories. I note that the TV series made a few changes in character; for example, Insp Keating is not an atheist but a churchgoer, and his friendship with Sidney predates the stories. The period atmosphere is wonderfully evoked; I was a small boy in the fifties and every so often a reference brings back a memory, so I'm happily reading through this book and anticipating more treats. You may have realised that if you're looking for throats cut from ear to ear, car chases, rapes and low life, you'd be better employed looking elsewhere. The characters are mainly quite genteel, apart from in Soho, and Sidney spends much time wrestling with his conscience as he considers the amount of time he is spending away from his parish duties by helping Geordie solve crimes. Happily for us readers, he overcomes his doubts enough to serve God by bringing wrongdoers to justice, or at least warning them to go no further.


Exacto! A Practical Guide to Spanish Grammar
Exacto! A Practical Guide to Spanish Grammar
by Ane Ortega
Edition: Paperback
Price: £21.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for all students, 23 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent grammar for the student, this book combines the functions of grammar guide and workbook. All aspects of Spanish grammar are covered, and the exercises are at different levels so that students with a greater or lesser command of the language can benefit from them. I am following an Open university course in Spanish, but those at beginner level can benefit greatly from this grammar.


Venganza en Sevilla (Spanish Edition)
Venganza en Sevilla (Spanish Edition)
Price: £2.80

5.0 out of 5 stars Good story, good practice for students of Spanish, 22 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great, fast-moving story set in the Caribbean and Seville in the 17th century. Catalina Solis, daughter of a master swordsmith, is forced by circumstance to adopt the disguise of her late younger brother. Her adoptive father, a kindly merchant, has been framed and sent to the galleys, and Catalina must go and rescue him. Excellent practice for the more advanced student of Spanish. Asensi's style is journalistic and quite easy to follow. You'll need a good dictionary as some of the terms she uses are quite specialised to ships, weaponry and Spanish law and custom.


Lord Peter - The Complete Lord Peter Wimsey Stories
Lord Peter - The Complete Lord Peter Wimsey Stories
by Dorothy L. Sayers

5.0 out of 5 stars Why can't Scotland Yard do it the Wimsey way?, 14 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought the historical romances of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were the paragon of political incorrectness, until I met Lord Peter Wimsey. A motorist who knocks back the odd shot of spirits for the road, a father who smacks his young son for scrumping peaches, a quite likeable member of the British aristocracy, with decided views on right and wrong, Lord Peter would have the current political and legal establishment gibbering with rage. And that's not to mention Elf 'n' Safety, which Wimsey seems never to have heard of. This latter is not surprising, since the stories were written mainly in the 1920s and 30s. Their author, Dorothy L Sayers, was a bit politically incorrect herself, for the period in which she lived. Jilted by a suitor, this clergyman's daughter revenged herself on society by taking a lover from the labouring classes (gasp!), becoming pregnant by him (gasp again!), and then marrying - wait for it - someone else! On top of all that, she actually had a career as an advertising copywriter - yes, a woman in the advertising business in the Twenties! So, actually, compared with his creator, Lord Peter is quite a normal bloke, I suppose. He still has a lot to teach Scotland yard, of course, but then, don't all amateur detectives? Or would the Yard disagree?
