I found a great site for specialty video tapes on all subjects
including sports, hobbies, games, educational and
recreations, etc. It is located at Prices seem
resonable and service appears fast. A pretty good selection too.
They say over 15,000 videos are available. There is also a section
for books on every conceivable subject. Well, try it anyway.
