Japanese Doll Pattern Book Summaries

There are a lot of pattern books/mooks out there and, even if you get a deal, it sucks to get them and be disappointed.
So, I started using my meager knowledge of Japanese, coupled with translation resources to summarize what’s in different volumes.
Where do you GET the books themselves? I got some of mine from Amazon but Mandarake is great for deals on second hand copies of the more common ones.
