A number of resources are available to the general reader, free if on the internet and at a charge through most other resources. Amazon books and several of the other major internet book suppliers can provide lists of books about the subject.
Amazon.com has considerably expanded its range of books in recent years. They now provide both initial sales from a variety of publishers and second hand books from various sources.
However, for books published in India it will often be a lot cheaper to source the books from an Indian bookseller. I have used Biblia Impex PVT (email@example.com), or write to 2/18 Ansari Road, New Delhi-110 002, with no serious problems in the past. I have also used with some success, and have excellent reports from others about Vedams Books, https://www.vedamsbooks.com/.
If you think a site warrants inclusion here then email firstname.lastname@example.org

Star system: Books with no stars are only recommended if you have a strong interest in that area. One Star means a book is either quite specialized, or that there is something better available in the same area. Represents a book that is both well written and presents new and interesting research, and has appeal beyond a narrow specialism. The stars are only a very rough guide, the reviews will contain more information on the suitability of the book.
These are short notes on other books and articles in recent Journals which I don't intend to review.
