3.0 out of 5 stars Not for Everyone, Nov. 19 2014
Bought this as a gift for my sister, BUT, found out when she received it that she doesn't have Wi-Fi in her home, SO, had to return it and purchase the more expensive Kindle that had 3G. Think this should be mentioned in the features of the unit, so that people understand what they are getting, AND, I should have researched this item more carefully.

1.0 out of 5 stars They Don't Work, March 20 2014
Bought a package of these at Cdn Tire and they don't work. They did keep the carpet from moving for a day or two, and then the rug just slid free of them. The side that adheres to the floor stays put, but NOT side attached to the rug.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bonus DVD AND a CD, March 13 2011
Ordered this item last October and the CD is absolutely marvelous. A bonus to this purchase, much to my surprise, included a DVD of the Rome concert, which I did not realize I would be receiving, as it is not mentioned anywhere in the description of the item.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing, Feb. 12 2010
Extremely tedious book to get through. Managed to get 3/4 of the way into it and gave up, as it wasn't getting any better. Don't really care how it ended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, May 12 2009
This is an excellent book on the present world economic crisis. Has initiated many debates around our 'weekend' breakfast table. Would highly recommend it to anyone interested in how and why all this current financial mess happened. I highly recommend all of Mr.Krugman's books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ho Hum recipes, May 12 2009
This review is from: Chef at Home (Paperback)
Compared to the other cookbooks I presently own, this is one of the most hum drum recipe books I have purchased. Might appeal to someone who is a 'beginner' cook.

This review is from: Christmas Guitar (Audio CD)
This CD will be at the top of all my Christmas music listening. Gives one the goosebumps, and ALL of the tracks are excellent.
