Syllable’s big book sale

Welcome to Syllable’s big book sale. You’ll find a variety of titles and asking price starts at R50. first come, first served.

I’m getting tired of moving boxes of books and never unpacking them because I don’t have a proper bookshelf. And since I’m listening to books more than reading them – with a few exceptions – I’ve finally decided that the best thing would probably to sell them, helping myself get through my not-so-fun funemployment spell.

I haven’t decided on set prices for any of these books, but thinking of asking between R50 and R100 for most of them. There are some door stops (Tools of Titans, for example) that I’d hope to get more for, but that would be at the buyer’s discretion.

Buying from the big book sale

If you’re interested in any of the titles, you can leave a comment with the title and offer or send me a mail. Postage will be extra except for purchases exceeding R500.

There’s a huge range. I’ve tried sorting them by theme when I took the pics but got over that fast. So, in no specific order, here we go.
