This summer, we're giving away a £25/€25 National Book Token every week until the end of August. Simply upload a photo of your holiday reading to our gallery below and tell us in a few words where you plan to read.
Plus, discover fantastic bookshops all across the UK and Ireland – and don't forget your National Book Token to spend on even more summer reads.
We asked our book-loving colleagues where they plan to read this summer – plus check out photos of their books in our gallery!"I've got more many more books than I have time to read but am hoping for some nice sunny lunchbreaks in the beautiful gardens of the Horniman Museum near my flat in south east London!" – Lisa"This summer I am going to (and already have done) lots of reading in the very spot pictured, my little back garden." – Emma"I'll be spending my summer at home in Edinburgh, reading in many of the city's wonderful indie coffee shops!" – Stacey"Psychopaths and serial killers!… I think I’ll find a quiet corner, well away from the kids." – Alex"I will mainly be reading in my garden this summer or down by the river at my local park." – Sharon"This summer, I’m looking forward to switching off and reading at my local park. I've found the perfect reading spot by the river – its such a beautiful hidden gem and peacefully quiet. There are often dogs walking by too which is always a bonus and the only acceptable distraction from my book." – Kara
"I’ve got everything covered: hardbacks will stay at home for evening reads in the balcony, paperbacks will follow me to Crete to read by the sea — yes, even the heavy ones!" – Petros
