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!

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.

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.

Angela East

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 love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!
