TVSA member noels asked for it and here it is... a bibliography of the books that have starred in kykNET's Afrikaans drama series Die Boekklub (The Book Club).

Three seasons have aired on kykNET and kykNET & Kie since 2016 and all three are currently available on Showmax.

If you haven't seen it yet, it centres round city slicker Tom Niemandt (Armand Aucamp) who moves to the small Karoo town of Merweville after his grandmother dies and leaves him her guest house. 

He doesn't want to move to a small town but circumstances force him to stay in the village where he embarks on a journey of self discovery when he joins the local book club.

Each season features a selection of books that are discussed by the characters.

noels' question:
