About Books & Stuff

Whatever your reason for reading, let us help you find even more reason to read.

We love reading. And we love that you love it too!

Most of the books you find here will either be from our collection of second-hand books we reluctantly need to let go of (one can only rent so many storage units per month), or some new books we are selling because we believe somewhere, someone will benefit from reading that. We also invite fellow book lovers to sell their second-hand books at nominal fees per month/quarter, etc. from our site. We even have a Book Swap Program where we will give you some credit for any books you send to us you may use on future purchases.

Stop reading this, buy a book, and start reading that – so much better!

Secure payment

We make use of payfast.co.za for secure and safe payments.


We specialise in non-fiction, almost any topic imaginable.

Children’s books

Children's books are always in great demand, we list as many as we can find but be warned to sell fast!


Some books we can read again and again, if we find any of those classics you will find them here.

Modern Novels

We don’t keep too many of those here but you may find the odd one here. Check in often to see what is available.

Reliable shipping

We offer various shipping methods for your convenience.

Book swap program

Send your old books to us for credit on future purchases. You will receive approximately 50% of the amount we intend to list your old books for.

Sell your old books

  • Review received 19 May 2020: i know with the lockdown sending parcels is quite difficult, but wow a whole month now since i payd and still no nothing. (Reply from Admin on 20 May 2020 to this client lying through his teeth: Really? You purchased and paid 28 April. On 2 May I tell you we will ship after lockdown, or at least when non-essentials (toys) are allowed to be shipped again. Evening of 14 May e-commerce of non-essentials allowed by Government. Morning of 15 May I tell you I will ship on 19 May. Shipped item on 19 May. 28 April to 19 May equals "a whole month"?)
