Good Second Hand Book Store?

24 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me where I can find a decent second hand book store selling English titles, please?

Most of the places I've found are mainly Thai books, and don't have much in the way of English titles.

I'm specifically after the Dune books, if anyone has seen them for sale.

If not in a second hand store, anyone seen them for sale, new, and where?

Thanks.

Try TOPS 2nd Hand bookstore upstairs. They have a good Sci-Fi section.

The TOPS Supermarket is located on the corner of Pattaya Klang and Pattaya 2nd Road.

Try Canterbury Tales in Soi Chaiyapoon(off Soi Buakhow). (Spelling may not be correct.):o

He has several thousand second hand books in English at very good prices. Address and phone number ,location etc, will be in the hotel section of this forum if you need directions etc.

Hope this helps.

Went there today. Called Pattaya Beach Books. Thanks for that.

Really excellent selection in good condition.

No cash refunds, but 50% of cost off next book borrowed.

Unfortunately no Dune books. I'll try Tops next.

Tops is also Pattaya Beach Books. It does have a science fiction section, along with every other conceivable variety of book category. Excellent.

I use Tops book shop but I still find 75% of what I am looking for in Canterbury Tales Bookshop and they normally offer me a better trade in on any books I take there for trade that are not from there.

I just found Caught & Play dead by Harlan Coben, The big Burn by Timothy Egan, & Stieg Larrson's 3 books the Girl who played with fire and the girl with the dragon Tattoo, The girl who kicked the Hornets nest.

There is a good 2nd hand bookshop on Chaiyapreuk Road in Jomtien. ALL books are 100 baht,very good value and a decent selection. I have been using it for quite a while now. Just look for the guesthouse

named "Cheena Guesthouse" and it right beside that.

Not worth a special trip. Small selection and not much of interest in my view.

And if you live in Jomtien and find Soi Yensabi too far to travel Thais for Life have a small library in the Bondi Cafe on Dongtan Beach just across from the police sub station, same deal, buy one for 80 baht then when you exchange it you pay 40 baht for the next one and we update the stock regularly . I should also add the hours of opening of our main shop is 12:00 pm until 6pm Monday to Saturday.
