Having had a taste of Belgian beer you are sure to want to take some home and a fairly cheap way to do it is to look in the small convenience stores around the city. I found this one, with heaving shelves, on St Veerleplein next to the Gravensteen castle.

De Kaft has second hand books and CDs (and also some new ones I think). They also usually have fliers etc so if you want to see what's happening in town you could come there. The books are mostly in Dutch but there are some English ones as well.

Near the main train station (St Pieters) in Gent there is an English language bookshop called Limerick. They also have (or at least used to have - it's been some time since I visited) a small café with several kinds of tea (great for me because after a couple of months in Belgium I was dying for some real Earl Grey!).
Not sure how cheap/expensive the books are anymore but if you need some English books, it's worth a visit.
