International Book Day

Oct 02, 2023

It’s International Book Day today, April 23rd!

Since lockdown began, book sales across the country have soared. We’ve all enjoyed curling up with books while we’ve spent more time at home, and have turned to them for escapism, comfort and inspiration over the past year.

At Avoca, we’re very proud of our fantastic book selection. From books on wellness and beauty to beautiful home and garden books, and from the very best cookbooks to books on growing and gardening, we really do have the perfect book for everyone.

To mark International Book Day, we’re giving away the wonderful prize of 3 of our popular books to 4 lucky winners!

You can win the fabulous cookbook by Ottolenhi, 'Simple', 'Indoor Jungle' by Lauren Camilleri and Sophia Caplan and 'Epic Hikes of the World' by Lonely Planet.

All you need to do to enter is hop over to our Facebook page here, where we’re asking which books have inspired you over lockdown, and why? Perhaps an interiors book gave you the inspiration to tackle a DIY project at home, or maybe tips in a gardening book helped you to plant new flowers and herbs in your garden. Maybe a travel book provided some much needed escapism while working from home, or you tried a new recipe from a cherished cookbook. We’d love to hear all about how your favourite books have inspired you!

We will announce the winners on our Facebook page within the next week - please note the winner of the prize must be available to collect their prize from an Avoca store.

Good luck, and happy reading! In the meantime, make sure you check out our wonderful selection of books online here.
