World Book Day 2011!

March 3rd is World Book Day and as part of the celebrations, £1 book tokens are distributed free to thousands of children up and down the country. This year, these tokens are valid from today (February 28th) right through to 27th March 2011. They can be exchanged for one of the specially produced World Book Day flip books, or alternatively can be redeemed for £1 off the purchase of a book or audio book worth £2.99 or more. Of course we've the full range of World Book Day flip books in stock again this year, so once your child gets their voucher, bring them along to make their selection!

Valentine's Day

Unbelievably, Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Are you organised yet? Have you decided on a gift? Bought a card? No? Well, before you decide to part with your pennies it might be worthwhile remembering that books are longer lasting than flowers, cheaper than jewellery, and a little bit better for you than chocolates too! So why not try a volume of love poems, a romantic novel or something a little different this year. We've some lovely pink and red handmade beaded bookmarks that would be perfect for that little 'something extra' last minute present.

Also, from today on our Facebook page we'll be running a Valentine's Day countdown with a new present idea each day. So if you're the type who needs reminders, then this is a pretty perfect solution! Click here to be taken directly to the page.

... and then there's cards - did somebody mention cards? Why yes! We've Valentine's Day cards too! And we're open all day (as usual) from 9.30am to 5pm on Valentine's Day itself for those of you who (lets face it, like me) run a little late for these things sometimes. We hope you have a lovely day!

Paperblanks Notebooks and Address Books

We mentioned in January that we'd be building up our stationery section more this year, and we've started off with a bang! The section has gone from one little shelf back in the early days to pretty much jam-packing an entire book case now. In the last few weeks we've taken delivery of a whole pile of bookmarks, book plates, book lights, pens, pencils, magnifiers and more. What about notebooks, you ask? Yes! We've everything from basic lined Pukka Pads in A4 and A5 sizes through to travel journals, birthday books, kitchen notes, gift stationery, and handmade notebooks too.

AND due to the incredible popularity of the Paperblank Diaries we sell over Christmas each year, we've decided to stock Paperblanks notebooks and address books all year round too! We took delivery of the first selection this week, and there's more to come in time. So next time you are passing, pop in and see all our new stationery!
