Brainbooks broadens its brow

15 November 2004

Calling all bookworms: Brainbooks manager Zaki Sallie pages through one of the non-academic books now being sold by the store.

Reading enthusiasts will be pleased to know that Brainbooks UCT now has a selection of non-academic titles on offer.

In addition to the wonted caboodle of prescribed and recommended texts, Brainbooks now stocks a consignment from Clarke's Books in Long Street, Cape Town.

"As the only bookshop on campus, I wanted to offer something more to our students and academics," said Brainbooks manager Zaki Sallie. "By widening the scope of our holdings, we hope to make it more convenient for our patrons and, as Clarke's is a relatively small bookshop, we can offer the books at competitive prices."

Sallie noted that new books pertaining to a particular theme would arrive each month and be displayed in the shop.

"Due to the large number of graduation visitors and tourists on campus during November and December we decided on an African theme," he said.

Titles around this theme include the Walter and Albertina Sisulu biography written by their daughter-in-law, Elinor Sisulu, and Yesterday, Tomorrow: Voices from the Somali Diaspora by acclaimed Somalian writer Nuruddin Farah.

Brainbooks is situated in the Cissy Gool Plaza and is open from 08h00 until 17h00.
