Creative Editing by Dorothy A. Bowles, Diane (San Diego State University) Borden

This title covers all aspects of editing for print and online media and provides ample practice exercises for students to demonstrate that they know how to apply principals from the text. It starts with basic language skills and leads students through every phase of a professional copy editors job.


I chose CREATIVE EDITING because it appeared to be more up to date and more in keeping with my editorial philosophy than the texts I had used before. So unhappy was I with those books that, for a couple of semesters, before CREATIVE EDITING came along, I used no text at all. I havenat seen any other texts that I find as useful as CREATIVE EDITING, which seems to strive to stay up to date.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
