Last week a purry, silver machine whispered into the parking lot of Bargain Books Willowbridge North. The owner, Sam Cooper, gently pushed the enormous door shut and took a seat in the wonderfully packed bookstore.

Somehow the old, English elegance of the massive vehicle made Sam’s entrance appropriate: Bargain Books Willowbridge North is a bookish store. It is full, covered to the brim. It feels like those English country-side bookstores we see on television.

What’s more: the staff know their books, they know their store. Lynne, the English-speaking manager, sells enormous amounts of Afrikaans books because she understands her customers; she and her staff are always willing to help.

Whether you are looking for a brand-new American thriller, a book on old English motor vehicles, or the best Afrikaans books for yourself or a friend, park yourself at Bargain Books Willowbridge.

Experience the store. Don’t just walk in and out. Stay. Breath. Smell. This is a bookstore. Go and love it.

Parking is free, even for a Rolls Royce.

LAPA Uitgewers het onlangs twee bekendstellings by Bargain Books Willowbridge North gehou; wat ‘n wonderlike winkel. Al is Lynne, die bestuurder, Engels, doen sy geweldig baie moeite vir Afrikaans.

Enige iemand wat in die Noordelike voorstede bly: Dit is ’n winkel om te gaan ervaar.

Danksy Leopard’s Leap se wonderlike steun, word die kele ook nie afgeskeep nie.

27 November 2016: Ek! Ek! Ek! en Offerlam

Op 27 November was daar ’n gesprek oor narsisme. Riette Rust was daar om te gesels oor Ek! Ek! Ek! Herken en hanteer narsiste. Chanette Paul was daar. Sy het gesels oor die karakters in Offerande, waarvan minstens een ’n narsis is; ’n aantal ander vertoon narsistiese neigings. Madri Victor was weer aan die stuur.
