How to Live Like a Lord without Really Trying
How to Live Like a Lord without Really Trying - £10.00

Shepherd Mead, bestselling author of How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying, came to live in England with his family in 1958. Six years later he published a satirical handbook for fellow Americans to guide them through the nuances of British culture and save them from blunders: `Write down now that pants always mean underpants', he advises. `What you wear out in the open are trousers. Mistakes in this area can lead to nasty misunderstandings.' Structured around the fictional experience of an American couple Peggy and Buckley Brash and their two children, the book covers such topics as `How to Dress in England', `The Dream House and How to Rebuild it', and `How to Live with the Upper Classes Without Having Any Money'. Through the Brash family's encounters with the British and their bewildered conversations with each other as they attempt to interpret an alien way of life, Mead answers pertinent questions such as `Do English schools create sex madness?' and `Is England really a pest hole?' with quirky and affectionate humour. Written with the light touch and incisive wit which brought Mead such success with his earlier book, and deftly illustrated with dynamic cartoons, How to Live Like A Lord without Really Trying is packed with gems on Anglo-American differences and pithy advice which tells us as much about the British of the 1960s as it does about their visitors from across the Pond.

Spark Joy - £10.99

Most people would prefer to live in a clean and tidy space. Anyone who has managed to tidy even once will have wished to keep it that way. But many don’t believe it’s possible. Contrary to popular belief, tidying is a skill; a skill that can be learned. The secret to Marie Kondo's unique and simple KonMari tidying method is to focus on what you want to keep, not what you want to get rid of. Ask yourself if something 'sparks joy' and suddenly it becomes so much easier to understand if you really need it in your home and your life. When you surround yourself with things you love you will find that your whole life begins to change. Spark Joy is an in-depth, line illustrated, room-by-room guide to decluttering and organising your home, from bedrooms and kitchens to bathrooms and living rooms as well as a wide range of items in different categories, including clothes, photographs, paperwork, books, cutlery, cosmetics, shoes, bags, wallets and valuables. The illustrations show Ms Kondo's unique folding method, clearly showing how to fold anything from shirts, trousers and jackets to skirts, socks and bras with simple line drawings explaining how to properly organise drawers, wardrobes, cupboards and cabinets. Marie Kondo's first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, presented her unique tidying philosophy and introduced readers to the basics of her KonMari method. It has already transformed the homes and lives of millions of people around the world. Now Spark Joy is Marie Kondo's in-depth tidying masterclass, focusing on the detail of how to declutter and organise your home and take you from the basics of a tidy life to a new way of living mess – and stress – free. ‘The aim should not be to wake up in a flat of echoes, to a kitchen with a single plate. It should be to enjoy the objects you’ve chosen to live with, and to continue to choose only things you’ll love. Holding each one in my hand, as Kondo urges, and realising how many of them do “spark joy” was a pleasure, a reminder of who I am.’ – The Guardian
