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

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

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