Verbatim Bookstore, Stellenbosch

4.9
¨There are bookstores and then there is Verbatim. A visitor stepping through the quaint old doorway enters what looks more like a cosy old-world home library than a shop. From then on the place is a book-lover heaven, with gems on every shelf, an owner willing to guide and advise and a sublime spot in which to enjoy the discovery of a treasure" - Stellenbosch: Heart of the South African Winelands, p. 218

If you’re a book person, you definitely should make a visit to Verbatim Books an item on your long to-do list. - http://www.capetowndailyphoto.com/blog/2010/02/books-are-verbatim/
