Automotive Books
CarTest's recommended sources for books about cars and trucks

By Bill Roebuck

We've reviewed all major online automotive booksellers and found that Amazon's Canadian site is one of the best online resources for automotive books. The company offers up to a 30% discount on many of its titles, all prices are listed in Canadian currency, a gift program is available, and a fair return policy is offered. From the Amazon site, click on Non-Fiction, then select Automotive to see and order the latest featured books on our favourite topic.

Another online source for automotive books is Chapters/Indigo, which also offers the benefit of bricks-and-mortar stores you can visit to pick up your boo,k immediately. A list of store locations is available on the bookseller's website, along with an easy-to-use book search function. A nice feature is that you can determine from the database the nearest bookstore to your location that carries the book you want.

If you're in Toronto, a good place to visit is Autophile, which offers one of Canada’s largest selections of motoring books, as well as scale models of various vehicles. It is located at 850 Eglinton Avenue E., near Laird Dr., in Toronto. Telephone 416-425-1555. E-mail: Note that the store is closed Mondays.

And don't forget to check the listings at your local library.
