Give your child, and yourself, the gift of top book titles curated by Malorie Blackman and other authors through book subscription service, LoveMyRead.
LoveMyRead is a new book service that works with top publishers to deliver the next best-seller right to your door on the day of publication. The team shortlists six books for subscribers who will then choose the title which fits their lifestyle, and on the day of publication receives a book beautifully presented with a personalised note and a specially curated in-house magazine. The boxes also contain some extra special goodies, so that your loved one can make the most of ‘me’ time.
The service which targets both children and adults, offers subscription options of three, six and 12-month packages.
LoveMyRead children’s curators are Frank Cottrell-Boyce and Malorie Blackman. Blackman who has recently become the recipient of the Bookseller’s third YA Book Prize Special Achievement Award, on the 20th anniversary of the first novel in her Noughts & Crosses series, described to Melan Magazine that she is really involved in the process. She is known to be incredibly passionate about getting kids of all backgrounds into reading for pleasure and believes that you can’t, and shouldn’t force a kid to pick up a book – they need to be inspired by what they’re interested in.
“LoveMyRead is something special. I just wish it had been around when I was growing up.”
Speaking to the Bookseller, Blackman, said: “Stories mean so much to me, they always have. When I was Children’s Laureate, my remit was to get children reading more and that’s still my mantra. It’s the reason I write and it’s the reason I love to read and recommend. Stories come in many forms and our aim over the coming months is to bring a wide selection of stories that will entertain and delight. LoveMyRead is something special. I just wish it had been around when I was growing up.”
