While we anxiously await news of possible changes to the lockdown restrictions, we need your help. A small business such as The Book Lounge simply cannot survive an extended closure. We have salaries to pay, suppliers to pay for books purchased in previous months and various other fixed costs.

If you are able to do so, please consider supporting us during these difficult times in one of the following ways:

(1) Purchase a voucher for yourself (or as a gift for someone else) with either Snapscan or Payfast on our website to be used once we are able to reopen. You can do this here.

(2) Purchase a voucher or make a donation by making a deposit into our bank account. To do this, email booklounge@gmail.com and I will reply with our bank details and a reference number to be used for your purchase/donation.

If you have any questions, please email booklounge@gmail.com.

Kindly note that as things stand, we are not able to enter our premises or check our inventory. Requests for specific books will be acknowledged but will not be properly answered until we are able to reopen the shop.

As we said in a mail a few weeks ago, this is a time when we all need to think about which small businesses we would like to see continue in a post Covid-19 world, and find ways to support those organisations.

We truly appreciate the support of our loyal customers and will be extremely grateful to those who are able to help us weather this storm.

Stay safe and keep reading.
