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

      My wife would really benefit - as with fading eyesight, print fonts are many times to small to read.

      I have always loved DK guides but it's been a long time since I've bought a new one. These fresh-look guides look amazing, and this prize pack is fantastic too! I would love to take an iPad Mini travelling with all the apps I could use for travelling in one place, as well as a camera. Great!

      I love to travel, last year we had our first European trip. From Paris-Aberdeen-Edinburgh-London. I so love London that I had to request my husband to extend our vacation. I would love to go back again! To tell you, I have purchased my travel books (Paris/London) from bookdepository that time plus a French pocket guide! I love this site and I refer it to my friends!! Let me win this competition... In my life I never win competitions, I guess I am not so lucky really. Hoping this will be my first win!!!!!!!
