Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
SynopsisLee Raven, Boy Thief by Zizou Corder
Lee Raven, boy thief, has stolen something he really didn't mean to.

A Q&A with the authors:
What was your inspiration for this book?
Looking out to the north over the beautiful island of Zakynthos got us thinking about the period in time when the ancient Greek myths started to fade and history started to take over…
Are any of your characters based on real people?
All of them. Pericles and Aspasia are real people, from true history, and the
others are all a bit like us.
What was the last film that blew you away?
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly was on the TV last night. It makes you feel utterly grateful for really simple things – like legs and a voice.
If you were invisible for a day what would you do?
Go everywhere you’re not allowed! Or whisper in people’s ears. Especially evil leaders – tell them you’re the ghost of their grandmother and they’re to stop being evil.
