Larry,

You'll probably get info on stores from those living in Subic. SM Mall in Clark (Angeles) has a used book store called "Book Read." Pretty good selection and low prices. If driving from Subic it takes just about 40 minutes to get to the SM mall in Clark...

I don't recall seeing any used book stores here in the Olongapo / Subic area but I will keep my eyes open.

For new books there are two National Bookstores but they are very small with a limited selection. The National Bookstore at SM Clark probably has a larger selection.

If you don't have one already, consider getting a Kindle and you can download books from Amazon. I got rid of almost all my books when I left the US.

I have pretty much given up on Book stores here. I even had issues finding decent books in the bigger book stores in Manila. For me I prefer Amazon and read my books digitally now. I get exactly what I want and they have an Android/Apple app now, so you are not required to have a Kindle anymore.

Jon,

Thanks for the great info; especially the info on the Android/Apple app. Looking forward to meeting you when we get there.
