The Rough Guide to Psychology - Dr Christian Jarrett

PAGE 56:

If you ask a person to look out for a letter, say "X", embedded in a stream of successively presented numbers, you'll find their ability to detect any other stimuli immediately after that "X" will be severely compromised.

  8. I think this is my first time participating in Friday 56. My quote is incorporated into my book review. It isn't exactly line 5 on page 56 because that line needed too much explaining to understand it. So I chose one a little lower down the page.

    I have several Rough Guides in my library and they are good resources for specialized information.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
