London, England (PRWEB) October 4, 2007
Lovereading.co.uk has announced that the online literary network will be celebrating several exciting events in October. The main site will be featuring the Man Booker Prize for Fiction by offering interactive elements to help readers connect with the books that make the shortlist, while (Lovereading4kids.co.uk) will be supporting National Children's Book Week.
"Reading is fundamental to the development of children, and countless research shows the links between good reading skills from an early age and future success in life," says Peter Crawshaw of Lovereading. "However, finding books children want to read of authors that excite them can be difficult; the choice is daunting and guidance rather thin on the ground. That's why http://www.Lovereading4kids.co.uk is such a useful resource during National Children's Book Week: We make finding interesting books easier for parents, no matter what their children's style is."
Lovereading.co.uk will be allowing readers to get more directly involved with the Man Booker Prize for Fiction by offering downloads of the opening extracts of each book that makes the shortlist. The site also traditionally offers an on-site poll where readers can vote on their own choices for prize winners to see if they agree with the competition judges.
Lovereading.co.uk, launched in 2005, prides itself on an independent resource for book lovers to find new fiction. The site offers downloadable Opening Extracts of books, a Book Price Comparison Engine, human-driven recommendations and reviews, genre-based email newsletters, and an author Like-for-Like tool which helps readers find books similar to those of their favorite authors.
