living in the ‘Land of Smiles’

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai – used bookstores


One of the things I like, no make that LOVE about Chiang Mai, is the availability of good cheap reads.

There are about a dozen used bookstores in town where you can buy good quality, fairly recent, pocketbooks.

But my favorite is, Gecko Books


My guess for average price,

is +/- 150 baht @ 31.00 = $4.84USD.

But when you finish with it, they guarantee to buy it back for half price.

Only $2.42 – Shoot, I use have to pay bigger library fines, and that’s when I was in high school!!

Good Gawd Almighty, I love this town!!
