books from Kalahari
December 11, 2006 10:19AM
I remember getting my 1st yr books from Kalahari - seemed to be the cheapest option. I punched in my requirements for my second yr books (BSC Soft Eng) and it comes to over R7000. Some books are over R1000 and arnt even hardcover! WTF!

I hope these books arnt as expensive at other book shops...

Perhaps you should wait for January/Early Feb.
I've also found Unisa to have the cheapest options. but this holds only during the "Academic books special", which is historically during the beginning of the year.

What helped me through the years was I would get the prices from Kalahari, take it to Armstrong booksellers and they would beat that price. thumbs up smiley

I have found that Juta in Parow, Cape Town, was generally the cheapest option. They also normally have a special on during Dec / Jan.

I suggest you check all the Kalahari.net prices with at least 2 other bookstores like Armstrong and Van Schaik (in Braamfontein).

I've found in the past that some books on Kalahari are much more expensive than the bookstores.

ye... it seems that some books are priced the same as the bookshops and then some are like literally 3x as much... weird

I've found in a lot of cases that the books are cheaper on Amazon, even with the international shipping!

Confirm the Amazon route. Kalahari sometimes order your books from Amazon, then send it on to you (with their cut added). If you pay Kalahari for overnight delivery, it means overnight once they've received it from Amazon! Go Amazon. You'll never look back....
