The reading list. Sorted.
Food. Rent. Travel. The occasional beverage. It all adds up. It’s a truth universally acknowledged that students need books, but with so many other things to balance they’re often the last thing on many students’ minds – and that’s where we come in!
National Book Tokens are ideal for students; they can only be spent on books, so are a great way to help budget for those expensive course texts.
Not to mention that they can be spent everywhere - in thousands of bookshops across the UK & Ireland, from large chains to local independents. They can also be spent online and on eBooks at Blackwell's.
Nominate your favourite student to win a 4 year supply!
Know a student in desperate need of some new books? Nominate them (or yourself!) to win £1,000/€1,100 of National Book Tokens - enough to cover every book they'll ever need. If you win, not only will their reading list be sorted, you'll also get a £50/€60 National Book Tokens gift card for yourself to say thanks (although we're sure they'll remember to do that too).
Congratulations to this year's winner, Charlotte Small, who is in her first year studying History at the University of York!
Charlotte says that the Book Bursary "has come at the best time ever". She wants to spend her £1,000 of National Book Tokens on books recommended for her course, and has a special interest in Russian history, so will revel in buying books about this period. She's also "keen to introduce her cousins to the joy of reading" and will be treating them to some surprise books. Enjoy spending your National Book Tokens, Charlotte!
