I recently moved to country Kyoto and running out of books in English. the local library doesn't have any.
anyone know any place I could pick up used books, or a library that has a stock?
thanks for your help.

Where in Kyoto?
There is a shop called Green Books at the corner of Marutamachi-Kawabata. The only problem is a lot of the stock is that sort of "Discover the wonders of your own navel while revelling in the spritiual discoveries of another over-privileged white kid travelling through India, and thinking he is the first to ever think up this self-indulgent drivel" stuff. The regular novels are a little overpriced, but it is all there is for now. I am looking for second hand row in Osaka. If I find anything, Ill let you know.

Wantage Books, near shin-Kobe station is pretty good. I believe they advertsie in KTO. Fiction, non-fiction, travel guides, japanese language books and other stuff. Good prices and it's a charitable organisation.
