Been wondering where others find OOP books and magazines on line. I've mostly used Abebooks but are there others that have a wide and deep selection.

Amazon as well but there is of course overlap in sellers. I have bought quite a few used books from a Facebook group. If you have FB try checking this out

Edward R. Hamilton Books frequently has a good selection of history and ,occasionally, gaming- related titles.

Or your local used book store. Picked up almost all ot the Aubrey/ Maturin series and Alexander Mikaberidze's The Batttle of Borodino and Col Elting's Swords Around the Throne

The colleges in my city have big used book sales every fall. I save up for that, and make great finds every year. (Judging from the original owner's marks, I have been reassembling one alumnus' extensive military history library.)

ditto 14Bore and Steelkilt-- years ago I found a number of useful/ amazing/ rare titles at used book stores and library sales in the SF Bay Area (I do regret failing to purchase the work on gas warfare in WWI); I don't know if these are relevant nowadays-- it seems that bookstores are a vanishing breed.
