Elsewhere, you will be offered a restricted choice of free Book Token designs ready to dispatch now, or limited loading values to go onto each card. Most other websites will not allow you to order and pay for Book Tokens in bulk, for example £10 x 150. Because of this, we supply most Colleges, Schools and Universities in the UK. That's a service which we first started in 1987 by telephone and catalogue, long before the internet became popular!
If you want to top-up a National Book Token that has already been purchased, here's the number to call: 0800 6125350 and it is the only free telephone number for top-ups within the UK available daily 10am until 8pm.

The Independent London: August 10, 2002, Saturday. 'Features' World Wide Web: 10 Best Sites Of The Week. www.firstbookshop.com "This is currently the "only bookshop to offer book tokens online" (the national book gift voucher scheme). Originally a small-town bookshop, it claims to be "beating the big boys at their own game", and while it doesn't quite match Amazon for size or quality of presentation, book fiends are bound to unearth something here that appeals"
Quote from the late Lady Antonia Fraser - Author
"I had a favourite aunt who always gave me a Book Token each year so that I began to count on it and select the book in advance in my imagination. I always remember my horror when she sent me a dozen handkerchiefs with a note saying she thought I was getting too old for Book Tokens! No one is ever too old for Book Tokens"
