Press release

The nationwide Exclusive Books Summer Sale begins with the Fanatics Preview on Monday 21 January and the Sale on Tuesday 22 January. More than 180 000 books worth over R10 million will be on sale, with titles available at an average cost of R60. It’s a sizzling sale to celebrate summer!

Balmy, beautiful summer days are indeed here. Even though the holidays have ended, the long summer weekends and evenings mean hours spent outdoors relaxing. Spending a day by the pool or a few hours lounging on a daybed a lazy Sunday are definitely joys made better with a pile of sale books.

The huge range of titles available include rare finds, non-fiction, beach reads, children’s titles and more. 180 000 books means an excellent variety, ensuring that there is something for everyone. And at up to 75% off the marked price, where else will you find this range at these prices?

To heat things up even more this Summer Sale, there are fantastic red trolley dash competitions taking place online at and on the Exclusive Books social media channels. 100 Red trolleys will be hidden across the website with each trolley counting as a ticket of entry. The first consumer to tweet the product with the trolley image on it using the Twitter Sticker, and the name of the store that they want to do the dash at wins the shopping spree at that store! There will be two dashes. The website/Twitter competition takes place on Wednesday 23 January and the Facebook/Blog Comment on 30 January. Enter just by leaving a Facebook/blog post with your store choice as soon as the competition is announced on the day. Join in to stock your library for free!
