I have acquired a huge hardback library. Mostly cookbooks, how to books, and anything that falls into the realm of being relevant to the survival / prepper lifestyle. Some have been picked up at flea markets, thrift stores, and anyplace else I could purchase what I wanted for well under the cover price. . One source that I have used over the years has never failed me as their customer. I have no finacial connection to this store nor do I personally actually know the owners. No connection what so ever except as a fully satisfied customer. . Their books are almost all hardbacks, except as noted. They added CD's and DVD's movies and music in recent years. They have a flat rate shipping fee per order of $3.50 whether you buy one book or ten. Their catalog is free for the asking. One purchase and you are pretty much on their mailing list forever. Most of the books I have bought from them sell for about 20% to 25% of cover price. . they are: Edward R Hamilton, Bookseller company, p.o. box 15, Falls Village, Ct. 06031-5000.
