MalawiCichlids.com Bookstore

MalawiCichlids.com is proud to be an affiliate of Alibris, the premier online store selling new, used, and out-of-print books from thousands of independent booksellers. I have gathered dozens of the best, most significant and interesting books about the fishes of Lake Malawi and the other African Great Rift Lakes, as well as fascinating works that bring the history and the natural history of this region vividly to life. There is much here to entice enthusiasts of all levels, from aquarists keeping Rift Lake cichlids to professional biologists who study the faunas of these lakes.

When you buy books from these lists, you pay no more than any other Alibris shopper (and there are some real bargains). But, you help to keep this site, "The Cichlid Fishes of Lake Malawi, Africa" (MalawiCichlids.com), afloat by defraying a small part of my significant hosting costs. And, more importantly for you, you enjoy the benefits of one-stop shopping for the best books on our favorite fishes and their lakes. Perhaps you will even discover some favorite books you never knew existed. Note: All book links (cover thumbnails and title text) will open in another window, the same one for all books. Happy reading!
