My damn fat fingers, OP
Usually I shop on Amazon. But there's also Barnes & Noble, once in a while. Plus there's a military book shop here in Tempe, AZ where I found Flying Cheetahs in Korea, which got me started on the South Africans at War series I've been reading. It's called Avalon War Books and Hobbies. If you're in the Phoenix area sometime, give them a look.
I have been buying my books here All Book Categories | thriftbooks.com

Good prices. Most books delivered in 7 days. Free shipping when buying over $10. Some books are used, some are ex library, some are new old stock.

Holy crap. That's about six miles from here. Must investigate!
Check Stackpole books www.stackpolebooks.com
You can find special WW2 books from there, my recommendations;
Bookcase for legendary war books
Specially books like:
The Eastern front, Leon Degrelle
Kurt "Panzer" Meyer, Waffen SS General
I love second-hand bookshops, sadly there are none locally to me the nearest is some 20 miles away, the two mentioned close to Foyles in London I have visited when over there and yes they are very good. ( Foyles would seem to be excellent for new books ).
Sources, Amazon(uk), eBay, ( always pays to double-check on both), Abebooks, Alibris, Waterstones ( love visiting the store on Princes Street when visiting my lass in Edinburgh, they seem to have cut down on HB books, there are a few good secondhand shops around the Grass market).
York Military books is a good online shop, there are some lovely shops in York.
Five years ago we were in Perth / Freemantle and I happened on a really great shop there bring back 4-5 great books - loved it.
We live in a very rural area so most books come by mail, " dung" as my good lady calls it.
Some more specialist firms like U-Boot im Focus are simply great folks to contact and to buy from Axel and Benedicte are first class, likewise "After the Battle" and the late Rodger Bender was always so very very good, Aberdeen books also great but the increased airmail prices from the US have all but made this impossible.
A fair few of these US published books were bought when it was feasible, today it is impossible, even within Europe some postal rates are very expensive.
We added these shelves 6 months ago.
Some forums also good places to pick up books again has to be weighted up regarding postage.
I've been to Powell's in Portland. It's a terrific store.
books and music.
my only art.
I have an indoor flea market in the nearby smaller town that has a vendor that keeps a good supply of older books.
I found this one two days ago and tearing into it now.
