Booklovers, win £1,000 of National Book Tokens!

£1,000 of National Book Tokens to be won!

Trust the Token... and get exactly the book you want.

Do you find it hard, as a true booklover, to trust anyone else to buy you the right book? We believe that there's no such thing as a bad book, but sometimes even the most well-meaning gift givers can get it very, very wrong.

To get around this unfortunate state of affairs, we suggest (surprise!) that you let your friends off the hook and request a National Book Token this Christmas.

We're giving away twenty £50/€55 National Book Tokens, because sometimes you just need to choose for yourself.

Check out the full gallery of Trust the Token illustrations and find a bookshop to give you stellar book recommendations here.

National Book Tokens can be spent in bookshops in the UK and Ireland, including Waterstones, WHSmith, Blackwell's, Easons, your local independents, and online.
