WHSmith will have a pop-up stall at Deepdale on Saturday where staff will be handing out £1 tokens which young Preston North End fans can redeem in exchange for a selected free book, as part of World Book Day on Thursday 5th March.
The retailer will be based in the Sir Tom Finney Executive Entrance from 1pm ahead of North End taking on Queens Park Rangers in Saturday’s clash with a range of titles available to be snapped up for free, in exchange for a World Book Day token.
World Book Day is a registered charity and this annual day, now in its 23rd year, aims to bring children of all ages together to celebrate reading.

The charity is funded by publishers and booksellers in the UK and Ireland and thanks to the generosity of National Book Tokens Ltd, World Book Day are able to send over 15 million book tokens to children in the UK each year.
Children can pick up a World Book Day voucher on Saturday and swap it for one of 12 books, which will be available on the stall at Deepdale.
Vouchers are also redeemable in participating book stores in exchange for one of the 12 titles, or to be used as a £1 discount voucher for any other book or audiobook priced at £2.99 or more.
Fans can attend the stall to claim their voucher but numbers are limited, so get yourself to Deepdale in plenty of time to avoid disappointment, and be sure to hand your voucher in at a participating store to get your hands on some fantastic new reading material!
There are 12 books which children can pick up for free by redeeming their voucher in a participating store, available to view here.
