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.
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 25% cheaper than the RRP.
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.
They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.
Lovereading is pitched at just the right level for all the various types of people who enjoy reading in its many forms.
As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!
I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.
It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.
It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.
At Lovereading there are fabulous books available in every genre, with great reviews to help you pick the right book for you.
