I'm here for a few more weeks and I've read all the books I've brought with me.  Best places to find books in English?  Thanks!

Slim pickings...but you can try these restaurants to do an exchange.

Burrito Gorditos

La Cuisine

Cacina Italiana 

 

It is my understanding that Rock N Java took out their book exchange.

 

If you are really in despair, the airport has paperbacks, for double the cover price.

The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

Rock n' Java restaurant has a TON of books for exchange and you can also purchase them at a low price with all proceeds going to the Humane Society.  They have an entire wall of books.

 

Casa de la Cultura lending library on the corner of Juarez and 50 also has a ton of English language books and you might be able to do exchanges.  The library room is in the front right on the corner with the outside street intersection.  No one speaks any English but they can figure out what you want, I'm sure.  This is where all us ex pats who love to read and still have left overs from the days before digital donated our stuff.

 

Last resort is the gift shop outside security at the airport.  And the clothing and variety store on the north "wing" of the downtown plaza, mid block, west side of the street and before Wet Wendy's used to have a rack of English paperbacks.

When we were there in October, Rock N Java had removed all of their books and no longer had the book exchange.  :-(

No Name does not have a book exchange and the exchange at Rock N Java has moved to La Cuisine.  La Cuisine is located on the corner of Calle 11 and Ave 5 - next to Ego gym.
