Book Description

Sept. 27 2004
Some people, the author included, love shopping so much that even the weekly trawl round Waitrose is a treat. In this essential guide/memoir, India Knight dissects the singular pleasures afforded by everyone's favourite pastime: from dragging your mother around TopShop aged 14 to feeling your entire life would somehow be perfect if only you bought that battered leather sofa. Part series of essays, part lists of essential information, you will never wonder about where to get the perfect 2-inches-off-the-waist pants again. The Shops is a book for everyone who's ever had to part with cash, which is to say, a book for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended for all Shopping and Beauty Junkies Jan. 7 2006
By Iya G. De Santos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Despite the fact that this is a British book, it applies, I think, to readers all over the world. (I'm from Manila) It's not just about shopping, but about where to find what is, in the author's opinion, the best of everything - from chocolates to beds, hangover cures, beauty products and much, much more. Where possible, there are websites, store addresses and phone numbers. India Knight's style is very easy to read (think Nigella Lawson)and she often makes her readers laugh out loud. Particularly helpful is the chapter on presents, as well as the one on the perfect way to apply foundation. This is an ideal present for any woman over 15.
