It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
