Want to own an aviation or space book? If you know what you want, you can go the cheap way and buy second-hand. This may be the only way to obtain old and out-of-print titles. You can browse an aviation only store like Aeroplanebooks.com, Airways Collection and FlyingBooks.co.uk. For space books see Boggs or Astrobooks. Or if you know what you want, you can use search sites that link thousands of stores, Bookase & FetchBook & Bookfinder.com are some good ones. An amazing resource for finding old, rare, or just out-of-print books is Alibris. If you are starting out, take a look at the article, Collecting Books in the Area of Space Exploration.
Or maybe you would like searching and bidding for old aviation books and collectibles at auction site ebay. There are two other routes to super books — collectables and closeouts.

Other great places for aviation books include:
