Out of print is not the same as out of copyright.

Out-of-Print titles are widely available, often at very reasonable prices (some ‘Collectibles’ are not reasonably priced, in my opinion).
Try amazon.com, as well as this website, AddAll Used and Out of Print Books: http://used.addall.com/

Legal out-of-copyright reprinted books on woodworking are available. The good suppliers freshen up the text and illustrations without modifying the contents.

Lee Valley has some that are reasonably priced.

The Toolemera Press is a great source. Their books are also available through Popular Woodworking and Amazon.

Thanks I will look into them. From doing a quick search, just about any book is available as a PDF from various file sharing sites. Rapid Share, Filestube and the like. I don’t want a PDF I want a book I can hold in my hand and take the bathroom and read. Kinda hard to sit on the throne and read a PDF. Thanks again for the links I will be checking them out.
