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.

Jocelyn Garvey

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

I love Lovereading because of its ability to connect people that love books & unite them in a friendly, stimulating & interesting community.
