I was at the Juta book  store the previous weekend (Next to Shoprite 
Park, Parow) and they had a sale of their old textbooks. They only 
charged R10/kg.
I bought about 3 Java books, 2 on C++ and a datastructe and algorithm 
book (can't remember the exact name now) among others.
I don't know if its' still on, but go have a look if your a book junkie 
like me.
