Hi Nwgirl,
New ones at Kharisma book store and used ones at Pasar Senen Jakarta, they sell a lot of books!
Good luck!

Memories on Jl Jaksa and another place across the road. Also you can join a book club run by a certain D. Jardine. He has outlets at, I think, Eastern Promise and Stairway to Heaven in Kemang and a few other places. In fact he can be caught in Romance on Jl Jaksa most nights and always has a bag of books for sale, a cut above the general pap you will find in the backpacking places above.

Or you could start knobbing a librarian.
