Lovereading is pitched at just the right level for all the various types of people who enjoy reading in its many forms.

Pam Woodburn

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

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

Maggie Crane

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

Jocelyn Garvey

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

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

Emma Caddick

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

Val Rowe

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.
