This place has an incredibly selection of English language books on Mexico and Central America, founds lots of books that you don't find anywhere else except Amazon. The prices are of course a bit more expensive but this place is worth supporting. Be warned though, I brought my Mexican friend here and they could not find anything because the Spanish language section is small.
