    Amazon is a good source for books but for some of the ones that are out of print or hard to find, I like to go to abebooks.com or bookfinder.com. They are both easy to use sources.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Michael Byrne is a tiling guru. I have his older book, just called “Tiling”, but he updated it and added a bunch more info in his latest book, “Tiling for Contractors”. It’s a JLC book, and available through them.

    Another excellent resource, more aimed at the DIY crowd, but still very good, is a guy named Roger. His website is http://floorelf.com/ and he covers every aspect of tiling you could think of.

    Another surprisingly good source I have found over the years is second hand book stores. Most books are $2 or less.

    Found a really expensive book a couple of years ago on master Japanese joinery that LV used to sell for some ridiculous price that I got for a buck. It’s amazing what techniques and types of joinery they traditionally used to build their ancient structures over there. Just makes your jaw drop.

    @dirtywhiteboy @smallerstick and everyone else who have responded, thank you. Some excellent info here.

    I got JLC and FHB magazines for years. I found both of them to be invaluable.

    Good point out on the CFR 1926. I think everyone should read it once, if they can. Informative, but not fun reading.

    Sim Ayers is a genius. Whenever I feel like I need a dose of humility, I go read something by either Mike Holt, or Sim Ayers. 😆 Makes me feel like an idiot.

    Missed your reply to that til today.

    I went over to JLC and couldn’t find where the books are. Is that privy to paying JLC membership perhaps?

    I looked at it inside on amazon.ca, but obviously, I’m not paying the nonsense price for it they want.

    It looks like an excellent book. A little dated in some regards, and it doesn’t look like he covers latest materials like advanced Schluter or Wedi products.

    That book is only $8.44 + shipping on the US side of amazon. Maybe you can get some in the US to buy it, and then just mail it to you.

    Maybe. Are those not all used copies for sale though? I did find that link originally, but I just got stung on a US order, so I’d be somewhat hesitant.
