Win the perfect prize for Bookshop Day

Saturday 9th October is Bookshop Day!

This incredible Books Are My Bag campaign encourages everyone to shop in their local bookshop. #ChooseBookshops this weekend – don't forget your National Book Tokens.

We're giving 10 lucky Caboodlers the chance to win this year's exclusive tote bag designed by Dapo Adeola, a £20/€25 National Book Token, and a copy of Bibliophile: Diverse Spines. This richly illustrated and vastly inclusive collection, written by Jamise Harper and illustrated by Jane Mount, uplifts the works of authors who are often underrepresented in the literary world. We'll also include a copy of the Bibliophile: Diverse Spines Reader's Journal and Bibliophile Ceramic Bookends

National Book Tokens gift cards can be bought and spent in bookshops big and small across the UK and Ireland, including Waterstones, WHSmith, Blackwell's, Easons, and your local indie. Find your local bookshop.
