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

      I visited the Tower of Londen last year, while I was falling in love with London. I'm planning a new trip now, so one of those travel guides would be for London. My dad travels a lot too, so the other four would be the perfect present for him! I'll keep the iPad mini myself of course. ;) Fingers crossed :)

      The DK travel guides will really help when planning my honeymoon. I have been told they are the best books when planning a holiday. The iPad would also help with work as I'm working in childcare and am planning on opening a family daycare centre in the near future.
