At least, it is up until the end of August. Any readers of VCTB hailing from South Africa (or with friends and family out that way), take note:
The Reader’s Paradise Bookstore in Cape Town, South Africa, is having a special two-month promotion on fantasy and science fiction titles, including a big selection of books that come with a free signed bookplate from the author included in the price.
They’re also selling other fantastic-related stuff, including DVDs and kid’s costumes, and there’s a raffle for goodies that include more signed books.
Sounds like a whole bunch of good reasons for South African readers to not buy from Amazon for the next few months, don’t you think?
[Disclosure: yeah, I know, that’s a blatant free plug. But you know what? The guy just emailed and asked really nicely, and I like the idea of supporting small bookstores. Plus it’s my own blog, so I make the rules.]
