Colour Oxford Dictionary & Thesaurus by Oxford Dictionaries

This is the reissued Colour Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus. The Colour Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus offers the most accurate and up-to-date coverage of essential, everyday vocabulary, with over 45,000 words, phrases, and definitions, and over 65,000 synonyms based on evidence from the Oxford English Corpus, a unique databank comprising hundreds of millions of words of English. Definitions are easy to understand, given in a clear, simple style, and avoiding technical language. The thesaurus entry for a word sits directly alongside the dictionary entry so that you do not have to hunt around the page to find the word you are looking for. The centre section gives guidance on 'Effective English' which covers writing English and how to get the best out of your dictionary and thesaurus.

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

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

Its jam packed with fantastic titles, informative descriptions & fantastic reviews and has a vast array of great features & competitions.

Linda Rollins

It's a lively, independent website with reviews, recommendations and more - with a huge range of books available to buy in all formats.

Alison Layland

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.
