If you already have a book in mind, just enter the title, author or ISBN in the search box above. We use the same book wholesalers as the biggest of the online and high street book stores. So, if it's in print, in whatever format both physical and digital, Lovereading should have it!
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.
For days you're wrapped up in an amazing story; then suddenly it's over. When you've finished a great book, Lovereading's Like-for-Like tool helps you find another to fill the empty feeling. Unlike other book web sites we have a human interface to our like-for-like tool. Our editorial experts use their encyclopaedic knowledge to recommend other authors similar in style to every title we select each month. Just type in a name and explore some new literary avenues.
Keep track of books that interest you
Even if you read non-stop it's tough keeping up with the dozens of great books published every month. Our Wish List feature lets you keep an electronic note-to-self of books that catch your eye. So if you don't want to buy it now, at least you won't let some life-changing literature slip by. You can also email your list to friends and family, so they'll know exactly what you want for Christmas!
Stay clued up about books
Lovereading's email newsletters give you the low-down on the best new books in the categories of your choice. There are sneak previews of Exclusive Pre-Publication titles, information on special offers and innovations on the website, and exciting news from the book world.
When you register, choose how often you'd like to receive our personalised newsletters. Then choose which categories you'd like to hear about, and we'll send you information on the books we think you'll enjoy most.
You can change these settings at any time by clicking 'My Account' right at the top of the screen.
Stay pages ahead with our Exclusive Pre-Publication genre. Each month we sneak-preview a small selection of huge new titles before they hit the shops.
"Uncorrected proofs" are editions of books printed in small numbers and sent to reviewers and book buyers. Lovereading
lets you download and print off Opening Extracts of these 'not-even-on-the-presses' books, and pre-order copies for quick despatch when they are properly published.
There are also chances to win uncorrected proofs signed by their authors - something for any reader to really treasure.
Up to 25% Discount
Spend less, read more
To top it all off, Lovereading is incredibly good value. There are over 5 million books available to buy, almost all of them 20-25% cheaper than the RRP.
Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!
Why I love @lovereadinguk? It's in the name - as dedicated lovers of reading, they are perfect matchmakers for helping me find my next read!
My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
I love the newsletter with reviews of all the new books coming out. Can't wait to open it when it arrives in my inbox.
A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!
What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.
It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.
