Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

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

Sally Ellsmore

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

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

Jen Rainbow

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Sarah Davis

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

Suzanne Beney

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