SKOOBS PRIDES ITSELF ON STOCKING A DIVERSE RANGE OF BOOKS

for both children and adults and is particularly well known for the wide variety of business, self help and fiction titles on the shelves.  Looking for a gift with a difference? Skoobs sells an array of book related accessories, gift books, journals, quirky fun objects and gifting items for all ages, as well as gift bags and totes.

The champagne bar has been the venue for many special events such as book launches, jazz evenings, recitals, baby showers and private functions.  Poetry Evenings are held once a month where both established and budding poets alike can share their talents with each other and the general public. Set to music and with the lights turned down low – this is “date-night” with a difference!

Booking for our popular High Tea is a perfect way to celebrate a birthday or a memorable get together with friends.  Elegant, delicious and fun, the High Tea is well priced and includes a free glass of bubbly!  Skoobs also makes hosting your next book club a piece of cake – with yummy food, coffee or wine, bibliophilic surroundings and a 10 – 25% discount on your purchases (depending on the amount spent).

Always busy with charity events, children’s story times, book launches, quiz nights and competitions, you can keep up to date with all that is happening at Skoobs by liking their Facebook page, “Skoobs, Theatre of Books”, following “Skoobs FOB” on Twitter or subscribing to our online monthly newsletter.

    "I can honestly say that the launch of my last book, ‘The Cull’, at Skoobs was the most fun I’ve ever had at a book launch.  Skoobs is a brilliant store which has a superb function area (not to mention its own bar).  More importantly than all of that the staff are friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and passionate about books.  It’s one of my favourite book stores in the world."

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Management and staff of Skoobs for all their hard work and assistance in hosting this book review for Paws and Listen. The money raised will go a long way in helping us support the animals living in Piels Farm. You have gone out of your way to assure this event is a success and it has been an absolute pleasure working with you

    On behalf of Penguin Random House SA I’d like to express my deepest gratitude to you and the rest of the Skoobs team for helping to make the launch of Arundhati’s “The Ministry Of Utmost Happiness” a special and memorable occasion.  I’m delighted to have had the opportunity to work with you and look forward to doing so again in the near future.
