In this “Living Local, Loving Local”post, we’re sharing our love for all local bookstores across our country, but for Bokmakiri books/boeke in particular.

Books really are the best of us and Bokmakiri Books in Swellendam is our sacred little corner of culture, the meeting place of like minds and our virtual travel agent for the finest adventures.

With a diverse collection of carefully curated books, ranging from rare and unique historical artefacts to pulpy sci-fi adventures, their meticulously catergorised shelves hold something for everybody.

As well as expanding our minds with stories and knowledge Bokmakiri hosts monthly discussions with local authors, meetings with poets and interviews with artists. We’re really glad we have this precious little portal to the world in our own hometown. 💚🇿🇦
