    Ooooo yes you were so so wrong :tongue:. I've finished my degree but have both books and they are extremely good. Newburn is simplistic whereas Maguire et al goes into great depth. :-)

    I hope you enjoy the degree as much as I did :-).
    Aha, I hope I do too! What have you been doing since completing your degree?

      Not a lot tbh. I was on the wagon looking for a new job until I came down very poorly, with a suspected virus I caught whilst in the States during the summer. So I've been battling that for 7wks, more or less become house bound because I'm too tired to do anything. So hopefully in the new year I'll start to get better and can continue the job search.

      Oh I'm sorry to hear about that, it must be crap! Just take this time as a long deserved break from everything

      A really ugly necklace from my Gran. My mum was with her when she was looking at it and told her I wouldn't like it yet she still got it. I'll probably wear it to be nice but it's not my style at all. A fleece blanket and box of Roses from my aunt. A slanket from my mum (it's so soft and warm) after she wound me up all day saying I didn't have a present.

      I also brought myself Friends Seasons 1-10 the extended versions, Dexter Seasons 1-3, and a few Christmas DVDs.

      Presents have been the only nice thing about my day

      Strawberry Body Shop set thing and money from my Gran.
      Aunt got me a scarf and a clothes voucher.
      My boyfriend got me bath stuff, a snail teddy we always laughed at, a Pink Floyd mug, a yellow submarine keyring, and made me a cake. and his family brought wine and shortbread.
      From my parents I got some clothes, a Firebox mystery box, perfume, pyjamas, a nail set and a book set. They've been paying for my driving lessons as well, though, so that counts too!

      Pretty happy on the whole!

      So you're saying that if you didn't get any of those things, or things which weren't as good, you wouldn't be happy?

      If I said to you, "My dog is brown. I like sprouts."

      Would you have replied, "So if you had a black dog you'd hate sprouts"? I really hope not.

      I don't know how to make the picture smaller, woops.
      My boyfriend got me the Stephen Fry books and his parents got me the Molton Brown gift set (my boyfriend's dad has a big job in the company so it was inevitable really). My brother got me the little owl candle and the gnome mug and the rest are from my parents. I also got some slippers that I forgot to add to the pile

      I used it when I did law and criminology last year, and I used it this year when I did a module of criminology for. It's the only one that I really couldn't do without - it's all really plainly written, and excellently explained. It's the one I went straight for when I'd changed courses this year and found out I was doing crim again!

      Oh, why did you change courses? I'm really excited about reading through these Criminology books. I'm currently doing Journalism and there's going to be so much to learn for next year!

      I hated Portsmouth where I was at uni, and I wanted to get away and do something I was really interested in (history and social policy) rather than doing what I thought I should be doing - law
