Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Death Match by Lincoln Child

One of today's most inventive and acclaimed suspense writers, the bestselling author of Utopia now turns his eye to the extraordinary possibility - and dark potential - of high-tech matchmaking. A young couple are found dead in their apartment, and double suicide seems to be the only interpretation...Alarm bells ring in the towering Manhattan offices of Eden Incorporated, the high-tech matchmaking company whose spectacular success and legendary secrecy have inspired awe around the world. The Thorpes, few people knew, were more than the quintessential happy couple - they were Eden's first perfect match. Christopher Lash, a gifted former FBI forensic psychologist, receives an urgent plea from Eden to perform a quick - and quiet - investigation into the deaths. Lash's investigation inadvertently dredges up the memories of a searing personal tragedy he has kept at bay for years, and his involvement becomes more personal and dangerous than he could have imagined. When a second Eden couple is found dead, Richard Silver, the company's brilliant and reclusive founder, has no choice but to grant Lash unprecedented access to its most guarded secrets...

Reviews

“Slick, sophisticated entertainment, as well as a cautionary tale about artificial intelligence.”– Washington Post “Impeccably in tune with the times.” – Entertainment Weekly “Child conquers the complexities of artificial intelligence–fueling the plot with material usually comprehensible only to technogeeks.”– People “Speeds toward a suspenseful conclusion.” – The Commercial Appeal (Memphis) “Fans of head-spinning ‘70s thrillers like The Stepford Wives or The Boys From Brazil will want to input this baby right away. . . . Fascinating.... A techno-thriller that cares as much about the heart as it does about the hardware.” – Mystery Scene “Pure entertainment.” – The San Jose Mercury News

Love books. Love reading. Love reading books. And, here's the trick. Here's a website which caters for people like me.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

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

Love Reading - it not only does what it says on the tin, it does it with Jam on!!
