On Saturday I joined Jezze & Heather at the Book Lounge firstname.lastname@example.org for a crafting session. It was really nice (allthough I left my knitting at home). But next time I will take my knitting along, as well as some friends!
I was a bit early and checked out some books... They have a good architecture section as well as art/design & the environment. As usual I wrote down a couple of ISBN numbers, to go and check on http://www.take2.co.za/ if they were available and how much cheaper they would be... and was I pleasantly surprised!!!
This is the first time where approx. 75% of the books were cheaper at the book shop than on the website! my usual experience is that the bookshops add a hefty mark-up, sometimes as much as 100%... So I will be going back the the BOOK LOUNGE to shop, without thinking that the books would be so much cheaper on take2.
They also have a coffeee shop, friendly staff and have been featured in the latest House & Leisure. Once inside it feels as though you might be in London. So go forth and buy books at the Book Lounge, 71 Roeland Street, Cape Town!
