This Thursday is Children’s World Book Day. It’s a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries around the world. The origins of the day we now celebrate in the UK come from Catalonia, where roses and books were given as gifts to loved ones on St George’s Day – a tradition started over 90 years ago.
To celebrate the pleasure of books and the joy of reading, The Wooden Furniture Store is offering a 10% discount on all bookcases between 1st and the 15th of March 2013. The discount will be applied automatically as you add your chosen bookcase to the basket. Here are our top four buys…
