Book Depository Competitions



  • blog image

    This year DK guides have a completely fresh, modern look - to the jackets, the interiors, the maps and more. New itineraries will inspire travellers and make trip planning even easier - from short breaks in cities, to longer country trips of between seven and fourteen days. The DK Choice recommended listings highlight restaurants and hotels of special note. Refreshed maps showcase attractions and street names even more clearly, and sophisticated typography means improved overall readability.

    Now DK guides give you the chance to win a shiny iPad mini and 5 DK travel guides of your choice! Just answer the simple question below to be in with a chance to win. Competition ends on Thursday 10 October. Good luck!

      Thanks DK. I have a number of DK Travel Guides. I have found them quite useful in planning a trip and amazingly helpful in putting titles to photos when I've omitted to do so on the spot.

      I am 71 and disabled, limiting my travel, but my mind still needs too. It is hard to sit at my computer and my phone's screen is very very small. An iPad Mini is my dream. I love Apple. It would allow me to lay on ice, keeping my pain under control and still be online or traveling with the rest of the prize. I hope I win. I need to win.
