Summer brings with it the holidays, the seaside, family fun, picnic baskets of delicious food on glorious sunny days, and of course, the Exclusive Books’ Summer Sale which starts nationwide on Friday 27th January. It’s the perfect opportunity to snap up books that you have always wanted and choose your favourite read to unwind with.
Exclusive Books’ Fanatics members will get 10% off their sale purchases during the weekend of the 27th to 29th of January, while everyone is entitled to the incredible deal in which you buy nine books and get the 10th free – a few extra incentives to get down to one of South Africa’s most popular seasonal sales. The Summer Sale sees a vast range of books from every genre on offer at reduced prices, which means that you can choose your preferred read for a fraction of its original cost. To paint a picture of the enormous amount of books on sale, there are 5 555 boxes weighing a total of 155 556 kilograms that will be unpacked for your pleasure, with an average retail price of R51.00.
The hundreds of titles on sale – a glorious mix of fiction and non-fiction – mean that there is something bound to appeal to everyone. Oyster Catchers by Susan Fletcher tells the story of a relationship between two sisters, sixteen-year-old Amy whom we meet while she lies in a coma. A more serious title that will appeal to the mature taste is Nobel: A Century of Prize Winners selected & edited by Michael Worek, the story of the winners of the world’s most prestigious prize that provides us with a glimpse into the 200 most famous and most interesting Nobel winners.
Wish You Weren’t Here! is an anthology of some of the best writing on the worst of travel. Edited by Cecil Kuhne, an experienced travel writer and editor of On the Edge and The Armchair Paddler, Wish You Weren’t Here! is a delightful book, a side-splitting read that will remind you why it’s good to be home.
Looking for the perfect gift for your favourite little person – Who Stole My House? by Barbara Veit & Anna Laura Cantone, is just the thing. With the trend towards all things organic, The Essential Natural Health Bible: The Complete Home Guide To Herbs & Oils, Natural Remedies & Nutrition by Nerys Purchon could be the ideal gift for those interested in natural health and radiance.
