What is a Wish List and how do I use it ?

The Wish list is a place to store a record of all those titles you come across while browsing and which while you do not want to buy now you would like to remember for the future.  You can share your wish list with friends either as recommendations for their own reading pleasure or as suggestions if they have asked you what you would like as a gift.

As soon as you register with The National Archives Shop you will be able to create your own Wish List. To add items, browse the bookshop and when you find something you'd like to receive, click the "Add to Wish List" button, which you'll find under the 'Add to Basket' button on the right-hand side of each product information page. You'll be asked to name your new list and confirm your account-if you are not signed in you will be prompted to do so or to register a new account if you don’t yet have one. You will be asked to name your list so you can create more than one –perhaps tied to particular projects or areas of interest. For example you might like to create one “Gifts for Me” and one for “Ideas for Others”.

How Do I Share My Wish List ?

To share a particular list with friends go to “my account” – you can click on this in the top right hand side of any page header - click on “my lists” open and list you want and click on “tell a friend” you can then add a message and fill in the email addresses of the friends you would like to have the list.  The list will be sent to them including thumbnail pictures of the book jackets and information about the book.
