Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

I love 'try before you buy' extracts. I love the wide range of authors & genres. I love the author info. I love books!

Jen Rainbow

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

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