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

Lovereading is pitched at just the right level for all the various types of people who enjoy reading in its many forms.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
