5.0 out of 5 stars What a great book!, 13 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having IBS I need to stay away from gluten and in today’s world of pastries and sandwiches, it’s tough to find suitable shop bought products. I had no idea how to make my home cooking gluten free, but ‘Going Gluten Free’ really helped.

Author, Shirley Baker has written a straightforward, easy to follow and iinformative book. The ingredients are easily sourced and the recipes are so delicious that my whole family is happy to eat gluten free – this means I don’t have to make two kinds of everything!


Make A Sales Pitch For That Man: 5 Easy To Use Strategies To Lock His Heart Body And Soul Into Brand You
Make A Sales Pitch For That Man: 5 Easy To Use Strategies To Lock His Heart Body And Soul Into Brand You
Price: £2.39

5.0 out of 5 stars This book should be on everyone’s Must-Read list!, 6 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I absolutely LOVED Magda Brajer’s ‘Break-up Bible’ so was over-the-moon to find her book. If you are looking for love, have ever stumbled or felt awkward when talking to someone you’re attracted to, have had your confidence dinted, or just find the whole idea of dating confusing, then ‘Make a Sales Pitch for that Man: 5 Easy to use Strategies to Lock his Heart, Body and Soul into Brand You’ will help you actively take steps to move you forward. It is a very different and unique approach to the art of getting a man.

Author, Magda B. Brajer has written a no nonsense guide to art of conversation. The analogy of a sales pitch to starting a relationship helps remove the irrational emotion that can plague us through these giddy beginnings. With practical advice, specific words that put into specific situations actually work, you can get off the emotional rollercoaster and act from a place of calm and equilibrium through your interactions with men.

Five sales pitch strategies are offered, teaching readers how to apply these to real life relationships. The skills I gained from reading this book, like getting a decision from anyone and the art of reciprocation, are life changing. ‘Make a Sales Pitch for that Man’ will build your confidence and arm you with skills that will see you making better choices and therefore wasting less time and avoiding situations of potential hurt.

Written in an easy to read, conversational style, ‘Make a Sales Pitch for that Man’ is a down to earth, engaging and insightful book. A great concept and a great read!


100 Fun Stories for 4-8 Year Olds (Perfect for Bedtime & Young Readers) (Yellow Series)
100 Fun Stories for 4-8 Year Olds (Perfect for Bedtime & Young Readers) (Yellow Series)
Price: £2.29

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is packed full of great stories., 1 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Author, Sharlene Alexander, has a wonderful imagination and knows how to engage children through story. Each story within this book is accompanied by bright and colourful illustrations that add visual interest. Some stories, like ‘Simon and the Evil Serpent’ have the addition of definitions to explain more difficult terms. Others, like ‘The Cow That Tried to Jump Over the Moon’ are written in rhyming verse.

Many of the stories are moral tales conveying valuable life lessons. This book tells tales about good triumphing over bad, kindness, friendship, and magic. While they are perfect bedtime stores, they are really good anytime stories!

‘100 Fun Stories’ is great reading for journeys or quiet times together with the kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful and useful cat book, 26 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Savannah Cat is a new breed of cat. Think the African Savannah, think high speed cheetah...but small cat size - now you have an image of this gorgeous feline! Unlike the African cheetah, these cats are not wild and ferocious, but friendly and personable creatures.

`Savannah Cats and Kittens' provides in depth information you need to care for your Savannah cat from kitten to fully grown feline, from grooming to feeding. Author, Taylor David, goes into some detail to provide a backstory - the history and development of this highly intelligent and loyal breed.

This is a fabulous breed and this book is the perfect introduction to purchasing and caring for a Savannah cat.


CHINA: Portrait of a People
CHINA: Portrait of a People
by Tom Carter
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Visually stunning!, 22 Sept. 2013
A departure from my normal reading, I picked up this "little big" book after a quick holiday in China, where unfortunately I was relegated to tourist sites rather than the more interesting (but off-limits) hinterlands like the photographer of this book had access to. The compact cube size makes it unique as a piece of memorabilia rather than some obtrusive coffee table book, but even after several weeks I still have not finished pouring through all 800+ pictures. Ideal and inspirational as a gift for someone going to China, or treat yourself to visually glorious insight into this mysterious culture.

What a great book! ’25 Fun Christmas Stories’ includes all that plus tongue twisters, games and jokes!

Each story begins with a colourful picture that offers a visual way into the story. This book has become a favourite of my son at bedtime. The stories are perfect for his age group, so we can take turns at reading. What a great opportunity for interaction and for building his confidence as a reader.

The tongue twisters and jokes have had us in fits of laughter and the games are challenging and fun. Author, Sharlene Alexander, has done it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully entertaining, 20 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a fun book! As well as having 21 Halloween stories, there are also games to play and jokes to tell.

These lovely stories are not too long, so are great for daily reading. My son likes to read them too. Aimed at 4-8 year olds, these stories are perfect to help build reading competence in children my son's age: 6 year olds. Each story begins with a colourful picture that sets the scene and offers another point for interaction with your child.

The games kept my son entertained for hours and the jokes are his new favourite thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars You dog will love you forever!, 20 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What an awesome book! So often we are concerned about our own health, but neglect to pay too much attention to our dog's health...until they fall ill. As they say: prevention is better than cure! That said, `The Healthy Homemade Dog Food Cookbook' does include recipes for dogs suffering various illnesses, vegetarian options for those concerned about the welfare of all animals, and a list of things that dogs should never eat...very useful!

Author, Charlie Fox, includes a plethora of information from feeding puppies to seniors, from homemade Kibble to festival treats, from shiny coats to allergies; plus a stack of recipes. I have learnt so much more about the dietary needs of my dog.

`The Healthy Homemade Dog Food Cookbook' is a fabulous resource for all dog lovers. It is simple and easy to follow, plus my pooch devours these healthy meals and treats. Do your dog a favour...buy this book!
