Tedim Ultra Slim/Small Wireless Optical Mouse for Apple Mac Book/Laptop - White
Tedim Ultra Slim/Small Wireless Optical Mouse for Apple Mac Book/Laptop - White
Price: £12.45

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the price, 27 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, it's a bit more plasticky than something produced by Apple but what do you expect? I like that it has an auto shut-off so conserves battery life, and there are no wires. It does use up one of your USB ports but it's a small price to pay in every sense of the term.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab studs for unpierced ears, 27 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't wear pierced earrings and was looking for something for a formal do. These are just the job, with a lovely rose gold setting and sparkly purple stones. I have not worn the earrings for extended periods of time, but so far they feel secure and comfortable. Great!

3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate quality but in a book not a pack, 27 Jun. 2014
I can understand why other reviewers say the card it flimsy if they are comparing it with printed postcards you buy by the seaside, but these are pretty similar to other blank postcards I've bought before. True, they are slightly blue-ish off-white, hopefully this just means they have not been bleached.

My biggest gripe is that it is not clear from the description that they come in a 'book' format with the left-hand spine gummed together. This is fine if you want to use them one by one but I wanted to scatter them on dinner tables and would have preferred a pack of separated cards. Annoying and inconvenient but not insurmountable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing clear sound for the size and price, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bowl has a chime which lasts for ages. It is much more tuneful and lower in pitch that another one I tried which was four times the size! I recommend it - portable, practical and a beautiful sound. It loses a star because you really need a stand for it to sound at its best. You could use a felt pad or cushion. I made a felt ring using a needle-felting technique and it works a treat.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enlightening view of Mary from the Muslim perspective, 2 April 2014
Christians might be intrigued to learn that Mary, mother of Jesus, was mentioned several times in the Qur'an and is recognised by many muslims as a saint. This slim volume gives a full account of Mary in the Islamic context, going in to some detail about her life which may be new to you.


How to Win Short Story Competitions
How to Win Short Story Competitions
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value and useful information, 15 Sept. 2013
You may find the Q & A interview format a little difficult to get used to at first, but the information in this book is invaluable for people who are interested in writing short stories that will stand out to the competition judges. In fact, the conversational nature of the prose is quite engaging after a while, although I would have liked to see a handy list of all the websites, competitions and book titles mentioned in the text.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great news for adults with a bit of piano knowledge, 3 Aug. 2011
This isn't a book for beginners. It's for people who perhaps had a few piano lessons at school and regret having given it up. I love the online videos that really help to understand with lots of musical examples. Combined with the book, you get a good re-introduction to playing piano. The sections on improvising are particularly useful to me as I like to put together accompaniments to my singing. Such a relief not to play block chords all the time! Definitely recommended to anyone who wants to take up the piano again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soft, light and cosy, 26 July 2011
I ordered Totes Stretch slippers and I was really disappointed. The sizes were wrong and the stretchy fabric made them difficult to walk in. However, these Slide slippers are the business! I love them and they are a great summer alternative to my fleece winter slippers. They're light enough to pack in your luggage and give just enough comfort to wear on warm days. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars An in depth academic analysis, 3 Jan. 2011
This book is essentially a collection of academic essays on the theme of subtext and gives many examples of its use it various styles of fiction writing. It is a study rather than a how-to book and would be of interest to literature and film enthusiasts.

3.0 out of 5 stars A beginner's guide to developing your doodling, 16 Dec. 2010
After reading the glowing reviews, I was a bit disappointed. As an experienced sketcher, I was looking for a book of drawing exercises to inspire me. This is great for beginners, showing you how to develop your drawings from doodles to full illustrations but I didn't find the examples particularly imaginative. Apart from a few 'gallery' spreads of different illustrators, all the drawing styles are very similar, presumably done by the same artist. I think this is a good starter for beginners but I wouldn't agree with another reviewer who suggests that more proficient artists will get something from it.
