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"

1st Bookshop ~ First For Book Tokens Online & That Was 1999!

Delivery can be made direct from any address in the world, free to any address in England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland, with included presentation packaging and handwritten dedication if required.
For Global Voucher Deliveries (outside UK): We make a charge of 5 Pounds to send your order overseas insured and guaranteed, this means we are now able to send voucher orders throughout the world, with secure shipping charged to you below cost - most other Book & Theatre Token retailers are unable to do this.

Always we will ask you to post your National Book Tokens Paper Vouchers direct to us at Token House, as these are now discontinued. If you are spending money from one of the new National Book Token Gifts Card, we will simply debit that card with the cost of your book(s) when they are ready to dispatch - there are no shipping fees within the British Isles. Please note however that books are sold to you at the cover price, as discounts do not apply to this kind of purchase.
We do not accept or provide the One Pound World Book Day Tokens online, as these are not genuine National Book Tokens. Also note that UK Book Tokens cannot be redeemed against purchases made online in the 'books etc' area as this is an affiliation.
