How to pay it forward


View Linked Books

Stories and knowledge are for everyone. This is why we have our Pay It Forward scheme. Every now and then, we send out a gentle reminder (such as this one) for those in our community who weren't aware of it yet - so that everyone who needs it can use it, and everyone who's able to gets a chance to pass on the love.

Here's how it works:

Readers who can afford a little extra put money in a pot for those readers who might struggle to buy books - simple as that, an act of solidarity. Some put in 50p some put in £50, most chip in £3-5 when they’re buying something for themselves in the shop or online. We then add the sum to a virtual fund and have a wee board in the shop with some of the vouchers if the giver left a wee note.

Anyone can lift a tag, or use the code PAY-FORWARD-SOLIDARITY at checkout.

(Individual orders with PIF are now capped at £20 to make sure we have enough money to go around - for any orders over £20 we'll just send the first book(s) until we meet the cap. Thanks for understanding!)

If you wanna chip in, you can buy a voucher through the shop, feel free to leave a note for the tag in the comments!
