3.0 out of 5 stars Too short, June 6 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This checkbook cover is fine. My only complaints are that the cover is just a smidge short. If the cheques are in the slot in the cover, they stick out about half an inch. Also becasue of that, the checkbook register doesn't fit into the slot for it and has to sit loose inside the cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful pan, June 6 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Love this fry pan. Totally non-stick. And in fact, if I had any complaints about it, it would be that if you get a bit exhuberant about tossing your food around in this, it's likely to fly out of the pan. extremely easy to clean. Most cleanups done with a rinse of soapy water and dry with paper towel, though it does wash in the dishwasher just fine. I only wish it had a lid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable, May 18 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Love these sandals. I was familiar with the Ahnu brand , having a pair of hiker/runners from Ahnu. I took a chance on ordering these after a local store did not have them in stock. They fit as expected and the foot bed was very comfy. I have arthritis in my feet and knees and was able to wear these first time with absolutely no breaking in and no problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gritty and raw, May 18 2016
This review is from: Shantaram: A Novel (Paperback)
This "novel" is gritty and raw. The author claims it's a novel, but I think in fact, much of the book is a parallel to his own life in the slums of Bombay. This is not a pretty book, nor is it a feel good book. But it will take you deep into the depths of the slums, and deep into the depths of a soul that has seen hell and come back. Yet, there are redeeming features in both those slums and that soul. The book is hefty at 944 pages but I read it in a single day because I could not put it down. I already have the sequel, equally as lengthy, on order. A third book in the series is promised to be a prequel.

3.0 out of 5 stars good book but wheat free labels are wrong, May 11 2016
Recipes look good, and there are many I want to try. Just one comment. The author adds comments throughout on some of the recipes being wheat free, gluten free and vegan. However, she is not really aware of what these terms mean. Many recipes are labelled as wheat free even though they contain semolina or in one case bread crumbs, both of which are either wheat or contain wheat. People with conditions that require these limitations will need to use their own judgment.

This review is from: Christmas Time is Here (Audio CD)
This is a delightful Christmas Album. The performances are light and bouncy, typical of CB. I will be listening to this one a lot. There are 18 tracks for a total of just over 51 minutes of play time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Get one of the other versions, Jan. 18 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My recommend is that you skip this Annotated version and get the most recent non-annotated version. The annotations are confusing and break up the original text (especially in the first four sections) and aren't all that useful. the annotator would have been better off just to write a whole new book if he so chose. I found myself skipping the annotations.

This is a beautiful Christmas album with a great selection of baroque music. Top notch choirs and instrumentalists playing on authentic instruments are highlighted. Original texts are sung, with English translations given in the jewel case insert. A must have for the Baroque shelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars good stuff, but this is pricey, Nov. 11 2015
This stuff is great. But $21.59 for one can with shipping is a bit pricey. I picked it up south of the border for $1.97.
