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

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.
