things i wish i’d known when i lived in kampala, #189053

There’s a used bookstore next to the Surgery on Acacia Avenue:

The Bookend is a quaint used book shed located in the compound of The Surgery on John Babiiha Avenue (former Acacia Avenue). Built like a tiny log cabin on stilts, The Bookend is an unassuming store filled with a great collection of books and the scent of used paper, words and love.

…The Bookend has a small, but growing archive of used books that are available at only 6,000 shillings each.

This is something I would have appreciated when I dropped 80,000/= at Aristoc on a novel that took me 12 hours to read.
