If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

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.

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

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