Statistics show that Mexicans are not voracious readers.

In Mexico, most of the books sold are libros semanales and self-help books.

I would recommend going to a University library and looking for some Spanish-language
literature there.

You can try eBay. I bought a 25 book lot of Spanish young adult books and had them shipped to my house for less than $30.

I'm surprised no one recommended it, but I usually go to Amazon.com for my foreign-
language books. Also Powell's is a great place in Portland for foreign-language books
too.
