The Bloomsbury Boys work with many high-profile clients, including the Royal Opera House, Firmdale Hotels, which have hotels in London and New York, and many venues in and around London.

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

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.
