I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

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