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!

    Update -- winner: Anna Bitanga

      As a woman alone, when travelling the DK Travel guides are indispensable and having access to my children via a mini i-Pad as a added bonus whilst away on holiday would help to put their minds at rest that Mum is safe and well by instantly enabling me to send them photos and info during my stay, that way we are all happy.. Sorted!! :D

      DK sets the benchmark for travel guides; I used them for my recent trip to Ireland. My beautiful cousin was to have travelled with me, but tragically, was diagnosed with cancer just prior to my going, so I borrowed a friend's I-pad and used it as my camera as well, which enabled me to e-mail her photos of The Emerald Isle as I went. A mini I-pad would have been perfect. Here's hoping.

      I would love to win this prize for my daughter because she needs it for school as her school does not provide her with laptops as other schools do and they have a shortage of computers. An iPad mini does practically everything a laptop can do an will greatly help her with her Education. I would also like her to learn about the world to further her education to what countries she came from and all a out them, so when she travels to them one day she will be fully informed. Thank-you for making this possible:)
