One of the new additions to Khao Lak this year, is an excellent book store that has a good delection of new English titles (fiction) and plenty non - fiction. It also has a large used section and if you purchase and return after reading or bring one of your own you get 20% discount off the next purchase. This is very useful indeed for me as I am an avid beach fiction reader and am just finishing the eigth I brought with me, so I will be paying a visit shortly to refresh. Used are 220 baht and new 350 baht. The Nang Thong Supermarket also new titles in at 350 baht but not as big a choice.
The store is located at the entrance to the small new shopping precinct which has the Khao Lak Youth Club at its rear. Not a Youth Club but in fact a cluster of budget units of accommodation, mostly used by Scandinavian and Swiss families and youngsters.
