The Birthday Oracle
The Birthday Oracle
by Pam Carruthers
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars a celeb view of the horoscope, 25 Feb. 2013
This review is from: The Birthday Oracle (Paperback)
This book takes a celeb view of the horoscope. As well as telling you your character profile, tarot card and planets for whichever day you were born, it also lists the famous people born on that day, and picks out famous examples of each zodiacal sign. For example, Simon Cowell is a typical Libran.


The Jane Austen Collection
The Jane Austen Collection

5.0 out of 5 stars a must-have, 25 Feb. 2013
This collection is a must-have for anyone who calls themselves a lover of literature. Jane Austen was one of the finest writers in English literary history. Her wit and powers of observation come across as sharp today as they must have done when she wrote them - maybe sharper, as her following is stronger today than it was during her life, thanks to the many TV dramatisations of her novels. If you've not read Austen before, this collection of her six classic novels is the perfect crash course. If, like me, you're already a devotee, it's good to know you've got the collection to dip into whenever the mood takes you. Which is often.

5.0 out of 5 stars a thorough guide, 25 Feb. 2013
Pamela J Ball is an expert on psychic phenomena and magic and here she has put all her knowledge together to provide a thorough guide not just to spells and their components but also to the philosophies and principles behind the magic. Unless you're a beginner, you may find some of the information a bit obvious and basic, but as an easy reference for a lot of really useful spells, it is a valuable addition to my library.

5.0 out of 5 stars check up on any drug you've been prescribed, 25 Feb. 2013
This book is all about one thing for me: possible adverse effects. It's basically a glossary of drugs your doctor might prescribe for you, so you're unlikely to use it as a starting point for any illness, but what it allows you to do is check up on any drug you've been prescribed and find out what it might do to you, other than tackle your initial symptoms. Very useful, in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars a measured approach to the subject, 25 Feb. 2013
If you want to frighten the kids, give them this book. It's full of tales of ghosts, poltergeists, possession and exorcism that will definitely make it hard to get to sleep at night. Paul Roland takes a measured approach to the subject, and brings it into the modern world, sometimes hilariously, such as the tale of the ghost with a taste for German techno-grunge and the fact that Liam Gallagher thinks he's possessed by the ghost of John Lennon. Yeah, you wish.


Women in the Bible (miracle births, heroic deeds, bloodlust, and jealousy)
Women in the Bible (miracle births, heroic deeds, bloodlust, and jealousy)
by John Baldock
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars from Eve to Salome..., 25 Feb. 2013
This is an interesting idea for a book. Anyone who's read Anita Diamant's The Red Tent will already have a greater understanding of the role of women in the Old Testament, but this examines the whole cast of the Bible, from Eve to Salome, who asked for the head of John the Baptist. It has to be said a lot of them don't come out of it too well, but then you have to remember that the bible was written by men, so read between the lines.

Miscellany of Sex: A Riotous Romp of Love, Lust and Libido
by Francesca Twinn
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars amusing and enlightening book, 25 Feb. 2013
I always thought sex was quite a simple subject, but when you stop and think about it - as Francesca Twinn obviously has - it's incredibly broad. No wonder we're all obsessed. If you Google the word you get 425 million entries - more than you get for `god'! This and other fascinating facts fill this amusing and enlightening book without it ever descending into smut. Hot stuff!


The Little Book of Mother's Love
The Little Book of Mother's Love
by Raymond Glynne
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars adorable, 18 Feb. 2013
If your kids are acting up, mum, give them this book. It'll teach them that you aren't the only mother on this planet who does what you do. Feeding, soothing, love, guidance, discipline... all those maternal roles are acted out by the adorable animals in these pictures and the captions are so clever, they just make me proud to be a mum.


The Little Book of Best Friends
The Little Book of Best Friends
by Raymond Glynne
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars guilty secrets, 18 Feb. 2013
I have to admit, this book is a bit of a guilty secret. It's so schmaltzy that I don't like any of my friends to know I've got it, but sometimes when I need cheering up I dig it out and it always makes me smile. There's a shot of two chimpanzees sharing a joke (well, that's what it looks like) which just cracks me up and the captions are spot on.

5.0 out of 5 stars funny and almost human..., 18 Feb. 2013
Maybe it's the captions, which are pretty funny, but these animals look so human. I love the tree hugging koala and the puppy that appears to be hugging itself in the absence of anyone else. And the bear gazing out to sea, with one arm casually round the shoulders of his mate.
