Many of the most popular works in the English language celebrate love in all its forms: that heady first flush, the agony of heartbreak, joyful renions, the love of a prent for a child...And what better way to share these beautiful pieces than to read them aloud, to someone you love?

Research has shown that being read to makes us healthier and happier, it enriches our hearts and minds. Bring real pleasure with poetry and prose, favourites and new discoveries, especially chosen to be shared. Read 'Our places by the fire place' to a parent, 'My love is come to me' to a partner, 'Most near, most dear' to a child or 'A need to reach out sometimes' to a friend. Discover Haruki Murakami's quirky take on love at first sight and, alongside it, enjoy the immortal wisdom of Walt Whitman. The anthology pairs the classic with the contemporary, from Robert Browning to the Brontes, Shelley to Shakespeare, W.B. Yeats to W.H. Auden, Margaret Atwood, David Constantine and many more.

Each section of the book is paired with observations, questions and connections made by our Shared Reading group members from across the UK, allowing readers to become part of a bigger discussion. Sometimes the insights are humorous, others speak of deeper emotions. All are entirely personal responses to reading literature about love, prompted only by the poems and stories themselves.

The publisher is donating all royalties from this book to supporting the work of The Reader.
