This second-hand bookstore was around before I was born and is a popular resource for mothers-to-be and backpackers who can’t afford a new Lonely Planet. EMF holds a treasure trove of pre-loved Archie comics and Sweet Valley High books that my parents once said would rot my brain.
Also: trashy romance novels for lonely hearts who can’t face the mocking gaze of the Kino cashier (someone you know might see you!). There’s also a convenient borrowing scheme: paperbacks are ‘rentable’ for two months, hardbacks for a month, and the price varies depending on the title.
