LoveReading, the UK’s leading book recommendation website, has reading for pleasure at its core. Because books change lives. After championing brilliant books across all genres and ages for seventeen years, July 2022 saw LoveReading and LoveReading4Kids enhance their portfolio by launching an online bookshop with social purpose.
Every time you now buy a physical book from LoveReading and LoveReading4Kids, 25% of the cover price will be donated to a school of your choice to enable them to buy books for their library, encouraging reading for all ages and delivering better outcomes for our nation’s children. In addition, you’ll receive 10% off the RRP on a huge selection of titles.
When buying eBooks, you will be able to donate 15% of the cover price to schools.
Offering a socially conscious way to buy books online, this new venture will allow book buyers to actively support their local school, and a certain percentage will be given to schools in deprived areas. 60% of teachers don’t have money to buy books for their students. Reading changes lives and this initiative serves to make a positive impact on the lives of our children.
LoveReading offers the tools, advice and information needed to help booklovers find their next favourite book - and now you can buy them too.
Their team of editorial experts makes it easy for you to choose the perfect book to read next, and, free membership of the site delivers a helpful range of unique online tools, including opening extracts and listening to samples of audio books from specially selected titles. After reading reviews, you can save books to your very own wishlist, to remind you of the books you want, and also track your reading and rate your books.
In addition, there is The LoveReading LitFest, an all-year round, digitally native book and literature festival.

A Message From Our MD Deborah
I first fell in love with reading, aged five when my mummy and daddy bought me the most beautiful set of Brambly Hedge books for my birthday. They’re a little dog-eared but still one of my most treasured possessions today.
We weren’t a household with many books, but I fell in love there and then with the characters, the illustrations, the whole wonderful package. And I was hooked. I was a regular at my local library and couldn’t believe my luck when I was presented with my own library card. What joy to be able to dawdle my way around, stroking the books and I got to take a few home with me. I was so proud.
Right through my formative years, I continued to read voraciously but didn’t really have any advice as to what I should read next. After Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton, I wasn’t sure where to go next. How I wish LoveReading4Kids had been around in those days.
When I went off to University, and in my early 20s, I lost my love of reading for a while. It was reignited when my kids came along as I became excited about them experiencing the joy of reading that I had. When I became a school governor in 2014, I also began to see first-hand the impact books can have on children’s outcomes right across the curriculum and I became interested in what it takes to get kids reading for pleasure and how to create lifelong readers.
When the opportunity to get involved in LoveReading came about in 2018, it was a dream come true. It felt like serendipity. I feel very blessed to do what I do and feel we have such a responsibility to our audience, to any book lover or any non-reader out there to share the joy of books, the love of stories and remind people of the transformative power of reading.
We are here to help you find your first or your next favourite book.
