    To many, the Karoo is a place you pass through, quickly and preferably at night, en route to the coast. Guilty as charged, but not anymore.
    Karoo Keepsakes I and II by Chris Marais and Julienne du Toit played a big part in converting me into a Karoo-lover and the Karoo is both the journey and destination for me, these days.
    What I like about their books is that they’re written in an easy-going and fun, yet informative style. This new ebook is packed with gorgeous black-and-white photographs and has 286 pages.
    Their other books I already have are in full-colour, but monochrome images are just as good, and I love these.
    The use of hyperlinks is a useful and time-saving feature of the ebook in that you can easily navigate the book from the table of contents. The book is peppered with links to the directory at the end of the book, and there you will get handy links to e-mail and web page addresses.
    You will find abundance in this new book, whether you’re looking for colourful characters, famous writers, flora and flora, artists, pubs, eateries and so much more.
    I am confident to say that Road Tripper Eastern Cape Karoo will add to the Karoo Space catalogue. The ebook gets two thumbs-up from me. I should get my print copy in the next day or two from Love Books in Joburg, which I can’t wait for and I intend to read it slowly to savour the experience.
    The e-book is R150 and the print version R240, which is dirt-cheap.

    So easy to read and brilliant photography about an area in the countryside that is hugely underrated. All the hyperlink click-throughs to the directory work. Highly recommendable read.
