Pay It Forward

Since launching in 2021, our Pay It Forward system has helped hundreds of local readers on a low income to pay for books.

The inspiration for Pay It Forward came from the brilliant Lighthouse Bookshop in Edinburgh, who point out that buying a voucher is an act of solidarity rather than charity – a gift from one reader to another.

We couldn’t agree more, and we recommend adding a Pay It Forward for any amount to your order if you are able to to. It could make a huge difference to somebody this festive season.
