5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, October 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this to hold a Kindle and a Samsung 8" tablet, plus a notebook, chargers and a paperback. The Kindle and tablet fit vertically side by side in the center section (they did not fit this way in the smaller 11" Evecase), along with the paperback. The notebook and chargers fit in the other pockets. The bag is perfect and lightweight. It fits inside my carry on luggage for getting around the airport, then can be removed if I have to gate check the carry on (which happens frequently with the small planes I typically take). A great solution to a travel problem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings, September 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I approached this book with eagerness, wanting to experience haiku illustrated with sumi-e. I was disappointed to find that the author of the poems consistently replaced many consonants with an apostrophe, presumably to carry on with the slang feeling of the title poem. After awhile, this became tiresome and irritating ("ol' rockin' chair / hidden in tall grass / settin' empty") and I'd read the poems again, supplying the missing letters in my mind, trying to appreciate the meaning without the stumbling block of apostrophes. Some of the phrases are lovely -- "fragrant sound -- / wisteria brushin' / against the shed" -- but why can't the wisteria be brushing instead of brushin'? But this is a matter of taste, and perhaps it will not bother others as it does me.

Very few of the pages had sumi-e illustrations. They were lovely when they appeared and I wished there were more. The book ends with an excerpt from a poem by Robert Burns in which there are several typos (two misplaced apostrophes and the second occurrence of the word "time" should be "tide". Since I believe this book is printed on demand, perhaps they can easily be fixed.

The layout and format of the book are attractive. In addition to the haiku which forms the core, there are two short chapters discussing mindfulness and temporality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes, June 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Slow Cooker Revolution (Paperback)
These recipes can be labor intensive, but they are so worth it.The title is apt, it revolutionizes slow cookers. The book has lots of great tips on brands of ingredients, as well as slow cookers themselves, so ideally buy it before you get your slow cooker. I especially love that each recipe has an explanation of what is important about making it taste good--helps you know what you don't dare skip if you are missing any ingredients, and why the extra work is needed.

I hate the cover illustration, but the story is very well done and highly unusual. This is my second Paul Auster book, and I'll be getting more.

Lots of helpful information, well organized. The practical information at the beginning alone is worth the price of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tastes exactly the same as regular Garibaldi Biscuits, June 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had previously been buying the regular Crawfords Garibaldi Biscuits and decided to try this Pennywise branding, which was cheaper. The nutritional labeling is identical, the taste is the same, and the expiration date is similar to what I'd been getting with the more expensive biscuits (i.e., not as far in the future as I'd like, but far enough that I manage to use them all before they get stale). I'll be getting these from now on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great coat, October 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nice length for keeping out the rain, lightweight fabric, goes over sweater or light jacket, lots of great details including plenty of interior pockets, comfortable hood that can be zipped off (and kept in one of those interior pockets). Others have complained about hood having two female velcro tabs that don't attach to each other. If you look at the collar, you'll find a flap over male velcro that secures the hood velcro and it all looks very tidy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultra thin keyboard, October 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is hard to appreciate how thin and light this is until you hold it. A beautiful keyboard, works perfectly with my Samsung note 8. So easily portable, I plan to take with me on trips. As expected, not all of the function keys work, as some are intended for Apple products. The keys respond well and do not feel cramped.

3.0 out of 5 stars Face is too large, September 10, 2013

I have a small wrist and this watch just overwhelms it and is uncomfortable. I wasn't looking for dainty, but this is huge. Too bad, as the watch is otherwise quite attractive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the Moko Ultra-slim case, September 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I originally bought the Moko Ultra Slim case for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and found it to be too flimsy to hold the tablet in the desired reading position, so I returned it. This case is only slightly thicker but works much better. It has a tab that locks the folded cover in position if desired, but even without the tab, the cover stays in position very well. The cover is attractive and very functional.
