I love Lovereading because of its ability to connect people that love books & unite them in a friendly, stimulating & interesting community.

Megan Olwen William

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

Joan Hill

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

Sally Ellsmore

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

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

Lesley Hart

If you love reading, then you'll love Lovereading! Full of tips & info for every discerning reader.

Lynne Rapson

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

Lovereading recommends you take a leaf out of the book of Latin lovers. The Catalans in Barcelona celebrate their Valentine's Day by exchanging gifts with their sweethearts. The men give their 'novias' a rose and the women give their 'novios' a book.

By the end of the day, some four million roses and 400,000 books will have been bought in the name of love. Over half of the total yearly book sales in Catalonia take place on this occasion.

You can woo your loved one with words by sending them a book too and you need look no further for ideas than our featured titles below. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
