Question Books ?

How about some suggestions for some good books about this hobby? There must be some favorite books about tropical fish and plants.

What are you talking about? IMO you were recommended some fantastic books, several of which I also have, and a few I still want...

Am I that" old-school " to think that people do not read books any more? I still have some old tropical fish keeping books from the '60s. I do have one current book, I would like to find more. How about magazines ?

I read all the time, I just read fiction books. Most nonfiction books cost too much, and the internet is too handy for me to justify spending money on them. I have ordered a couple of dwarf cichlid books off amazon though. $12 shipped for a good condition $60-$80 book isn't bad.

ISTM people read more due to the availability of ebooks. With devices such as Book Saver coming soon, more people can convert their collection of paper books to ebooks and build up their own electronic library which is more accessible than paper library.
