An unkindness of ravens
We'd often wondered where the collective nouns came from and what certain collectives were. This answered all our questions. A great book just to dip into. a good conversation point.

A Good Bathroom Book
I bought this book for myself and am enjoying it so much, I've bought a second for a pedantic friend. It's not just a list of collective nouns as I was expecting, but is full of fascinating information about the history and derivation of the words. It's also very nicely illustrated.

An Unkindness of Ravens Book
Received the book which was split from top to bottom on front cover binding and very obvious. Not something that happened in transit. Returned the item and received a replacement. Requested a refund of postage as the error was not on my part. Still waiting for refund to arrive.

Goods arrived very quickly although not in perfect condition.The damage was not done in transit perhaps someone was not paying attention with packing.
Still waiting for refund of postage to return damaged item as I do not feel I should be the one to be paying.
