Default Books and DVD's.

As fisherman and outdoorsmen we all love books and DVD's showing things we're interested in, and places we've either been or dream of seeing some day.
I'm curious as to where most of you get your media, the local book store or flyshop, ebay, Yahoo? Where do you get yer fix? And what do you look for?

I read quite a bit as is, so I make frequent purchases on Amazon. There are quite a few fishing books on there too I recently found out. I ordered more than I'm willing to admit Should be here next week! Found a couple DVD's too.

I like Amazon because you can usually get used stuff for a real good price, often the best price around. It seems like stuff I see on ebay is a lot more used/in worse condition.

Lets hear some peoples favorite books and DVDs along with this! I'll let you know mine once the new shipment comes in.

+1 on Amazon. My wife complains because the big brown truck shows up on the order of twice a week. I read a lot.

Amazon's database is one of the best in the business. As hound describes, even used and out-of-print books often have remarkable prices. And if you order a lot, like I do, you can sign up for Amazon Prime - an annual fee service - and get free 2-day shipping on most everything.

This week I ordered "In Hemingway's Meadow," "Theodore Gordon on Trout," and "Love Story of the Trout."

Very much recommended.

I enjoy books quite a bit, too. Am by and large only interested in older books, particularly about atlantic salmon fishing. Ebay comes in handy once in awhile. Amazon not much use for the older books, but AbeBooks comes in real handy when seaching for a particular book, or just surfing. They are sort of a clearing house for many, many book dealers around the world.
