Missing: Used Bookstore

Anyone know of any decent secondhand bookshops in Yoqneam, Kiryat Tivon, Migdal Ha'Emek, or Afula?

I just ordered this book as a surprise for my daughter - Fancy Nancy: Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth

But it would be so much more gratifying to take her to a bookstore with a great English language selection (yes, she is still more comfortable reading in English. She can read in Hebrew, but not as well as English), of preferably affordable, second hand books and let her eyes get all wide and big, and let her excitedly pick out one or two new-to-her books! I guess it would be great to let ALL my kids do that, as we used to when we lived in Florida. We spent many, many hours, the 4 of them and me, looking through shelves and shelves (and bins, too) of second hand books. Usually ranging in price from 10 cents to $2.

I miss that so much.

So if anyone has a secret, super affordable, second-hand book shop within a half-hour of my house, PLEASE tell me about it...

In the meantime, we're making do with online shopping. Our favorites are Fishpond.com and BetterWorldBooks.com (both offer free shipping worldwide) (use code STARTSUMMER12 for 20% 3 or more used books at BWB!)
