Can anymore recommend a good place to search for astronomy books. I am really looking for good quality books on stars and the individual planets. I hate Amazon by the way :-)

When you say "quality books", do you mean technical volumes or the more popular sort of, say, the Patrick Moore kind? The range of astronomy books is vast?

You might like to consider Phillips Colour Star Atlas. The maps are very attractive and give the physical types of many stars. There's also plenty of interesting text for an atlas. I wouldn't like to part with mine. :D

I am more interested in text book style. The life of a star and the individual planets in more detail than 2 or 3 pages
