I recently ordered a couple books from 3 Rivers Archery. This was my first order with them. They've got a nice selection of traditional archery goods, books & dvds. They have product reviews on some items, which is nice to read if you aren't sure if something will work for you or not.

I haven't read the books yet (still working through 4 library books right now). The Shooting the Stickbow: A Practical Approach to Classical Archery one is a good-sized book and looks like it's very thorough. I recommend it for anyone new to the sport as well as anyone who has been shooting regularly and needs a good reference. The topics include basic equipment set up, common errors, tuning your bow, exercises, and has bowstring and arrow references among others. It's great value for money ($19.99US excluding shipping).

The other one I picked up is a thin book, very small but also packed with information. Simple Maintenance for Archery is geared towards either stick bows or compounds. It doesn't touch the bow maintenance so much as things like sights, serving, arrows, installing peepsights and kisser buttons. For a newbie like me, the sectionon waxing the string might seem "well duh" but is good to know.

3 Rivers was quick to ship and no fuss. If you shoot stickbows check out their selection of gear. If you shoot anything else check out their books & dvds or if you hunt check their treestands and blinds. If you are interested in history, SCA or anything recreation check their SCA-Medieval section. You can buy stone point knapping stuff, including blanks or already-knapped stone heads and metal trade points. They've got a nice selection of goodies.
