Independent Bookshop Week 2021

We’re fully in the swing of IBW2021 here!

As well as sending out FREE £5 National Book Token vouchers (I had 100 in total – at time of going to press I have about half of those left! If you want one, PLEASE get in touch!), we’ve been collating loads of publishers’ activity sheets and learning resources – if you have a particualr book in mind, please do search for the book using the website’s search function, you might find it’s already available there!

In the mean time – here are some of our favourites!

As always, if you share on social media any photos etc of you (and your children) enjoying books or downloads that you’ve found through us, please do tag @nickelbooks and hashtag #nickelbooks, #IBW2021, #BooksAreMyBag.

Thanks to Bloomsbury Publishing, Nosy Crow, Harpercollins Children’s Books, Walker Books, MacMillan Children’s Books… for the downloads.

Summer Books Catalogue 2021

The sun is attempting to shine (and we’re dodging the rain showers!), so it must be time to share some of the best books that are being published this summer!

We’ve got a lovely Summer Books catalogue – similar in style to our Christmas Books Catalogue, but fills that long gap between holidays. It’s a summer holiday list!

If you’re going away (not far) or staying at home, or you’ve got birthdays or other special occasions to give books, we’ve got everything you need!

I’m adding the books to the website this week, so please have a browse in the Summer Catalogue section,Summer Catalogue section, and here’s the digital version of the catalogue
(please note publication dates when ordering)

Please share any books you’ve bought and enjoyed on our social media – we’re on facebook, instagram, tumblr and twitter as @nickelbooks – please use the hashtags #summerbooks #choosebookshops and #booksaremybag when sharing!
