Opening Extracts

You wouldn't buy a car without a test-drive; you wouldn't buy shoes without trying them for size; so before you buy a book, make sure it's for you!
Uniquely on Lovereading, you can read the Opening Extract of every Featured Book. This could be the first chapter; less if the chapters are long, more if they're short. We aim to give you enough of a book to really get a taste for the author.

Click the 'download extract' button next to a title and choose 'open' when prompted to open or save the file. You can read it on your screen or print out to enjoy on the train or in your garden.
