World Book Day Fest
2014 World Book Day Books

About Your Book Token

Thanks to National Book Tokens and lots of lovely book publishers and booksellers, World Book Day, in partnership with schools all over the country, will be distributing more than 14 million £1 World Book Day book tokens to children (that’s almost one for every child/young person under 18 in the UK and Ireland).

When you get your book token, all you need to do is to take it to your local bookshop (there’s lots of them out there – find your local participating bookshop here and swap it for one of these ten (exclusive, new and completely free) £1 World Book Day books!

Or, if you’d prefer, you can use your book token to get £1 off any full price book instead! (If you’re in Ireland it’s €1.50 off). And if you’d rather get an audio book, that’s fine too!

So that’s £1 (or €1.50) off any book or audio book, it’s your choice, just as long as it would normally cost at least £2.99 (or €3.99 in Ireland).

Then all YOU have to do is take your book home and enjoy it.


Get your Golden Ticket

This year we’ll be running a competition on the £1 book tokens to celebrate 50 years of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

There will be 5 WHIPPLE-scrumptious prizes up for grabs. Watch this space for more information coming in January! Will someone YOU know get a Golden Ticket?
