Used Book Shops in Chiang Mai

The Chiang Mai used books store scene has exploded in the last number of years with containers of used English books being offered for resale. The leader is of course Geko Books, but othershave found their niche as well. One does wonder how long the actual book will be so popular with "Net books" and the future of printing but I hope it will aways be there. But was not  Amazon to end book stores?
