Thanks to comments in the first Saab Library entry, as well as a few emails I’ve received, I’ve managed to build up a decent list of Saab-related titles to add to my shopping list. One thing that’s become clear is how miniscule my own collection is at only 5 or so titles!! I’ve also got numerous sales brochures from over the years and Saabmissions and Saabscene magazines, but in terms of books one could say that I’ve been weighed, measured and found to be severely lacking.
Here’s the list I’ve been able to build up so far, with the titles I’ve got accompanied by an asterisk. I’ve left out any aircraft related titles and service manuals. I’ll be aiming to purchase a few of these via the Amazon links in the left sidebar.

There’s several other titles over at the original Saab Library post, in comments, that aren’t necessarily Saab specific but may be of interest.
As mentioned, a handful of these titles are listed in my Amazon links on the left sidebar and would be perfect Christmas presents for the Saab enthusiast to order for himself on behalf of his ever-loving spouse or offspring. Please be aware that through this blatant suggestive selling, I’d be reaping a paltry commission from Amazon as a result of the transaction.
