It is now possible to guest blog on our site, which makes us extremely happy and it also makes us aware of what our customers are thinking. Another new idea is our competitions section. Presently your children will be able to win the opportunity to have their work published and as the competition doesn't end until May 2013 there's still plenty of time for all budding authors to enter!
We now have daily deals sections too. Each day a new product is offered at ridiculously low prices (for pennies even!) and will remain on offer for 2 days. However, if you really want it we wouldn't suggest you leave it that long before making your move. Shop4Books hates to disappoint our customers.
Our Ideas 4 Gifts section has been improved. This is now called Book Collections 4 Gifts because we feel that book collections in boxed sets make the perfect present for any occasion and these are updated every week so you are always spoiled for choice. In our popular books section we are now able to select books which are amongst the most popular and best sellers.
Shop4Books is already joined in harmony with many other respected retailers and just lately we have happily joined with even more, the details of which are below:
Back in the Days
Everybody loves nostalgia and at Back In The Days you will find lots of things to remind you of the sounds, tastes and sights of days gone by or the brilliant opportunity to introduce some retro chic into your life.
For a long time generations couldn't wait to modernise everything in sight, gladly leaving behind memories of their childhood. However, retro is now back in fashion and vintage furniture and bright coloured wallpaper have again been welcomed with open arms.
Maybe 20th Century designers really did know what they were doing after all, as all the products back then did do the job they were intended to do and looked fantastic to boot! For example, after going through the austere and dreary war years it was no wonder 50s kitchens became more colourful and had great looking accessories and appliances too.
Of course the 1960s was the decade that redefined people's roles in society. Women felt more liberated and the music of that time celebrates this movement – maybe that's why the music of the 60s and 70s is still revered so much by the musicians of today?
The 1970s were for many years the decade that style forgot! But of course it was being judged against the hugely stylish shoulder pads and rolled up sleeves on pink suits that was the 1980s!!! Now the 70s is a decade people celebrate.
Vintage is cool! It's back!
Card Town is the perfect compliment to Shop4Books. We already sell school and office stationery supplies so it seemed only right that we should join with Card Town. Considered to be the best place for personalised cards, Card Town offers thousands of cards that are suitable for all occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day and more. In order for you to create that extra special card you can easily add your own words and images to them.
As long as you order before 2pm your personalised card will be sent out the same day and with prices starting at £2.99 and themes including Star Wars, Hello Kitty, Ben 10, Transformers and many more you can't fail to find the perfect card for your loved one.
Father Christmas Letters
As with the previous company, we felt that we could gel with Father Christmas Letters, considered to be the best on the market. While you are looking on the Shop4Books website for Christmas gifts you can also arrange for your kids to receive a letter from the man himself!
Just imagine the sound of the morning's post hitting the doormat and amongst it is a personal letter from Santa. Can you see the look of amazement on your child's face when they realise that Santa knows where they live, their age and even the name of their best friend.
Father Christmas Letters also provides personalised letters from Father Christmas or Santa Claus to adults too! Do you know any 'big kids' who'd appreciate a letter from Father Christmas?
As we are currently affiliated with the Puffin Book Club for all your book club books, it seemed only natural for us to join with Puffin Post too. Puffin is a brand name that parents and grandparents remember all too well so they know it will be a fun and educational gift. Introducing you children to Puffin Post, a children's magazine helps to promote a love of reading in kids aged 6-13 years, a love that will surely continue for many years to come.
For just £45 your kids will not only receive six fun-filled magazines (bursting with competitions, puzzles and stories and interviews with the best children's authors), a mega membership pack and VIP access to Puffin Post's exclusive website, but your little puffins can choose 6 free books, from must-read classics to brand new releases, worth over £47 as well! How can this not be the perfect gift for all young bookworms!
And finally we have ...
Walt Disney Travel
You may be thinking that this is a strange addition to our site but not when you consider that Shop4Books has a travel category which is home to lots of travel books and maps, including Florida.
There is a Disney Resort hotel to suit everyone's taste and more importantly, budget, so whether you are looking for room only accommodation, Disney Theme Park Tickets or a Hotel and Ticket package, no matter how long you stay, only the Walt Disney Travel Company guarantees you so much choice and magic!
Plan next year's holiday together as a family!
