Where can I buy map books online?

... you know, those 8x10 (ish) sized (to fit in a tank bag with a clear map pocket), spiral bound, where maps on each page overlap by a bit to the next page, and have blown up city centres as their page or pages. Not laminated, but thicker pages to stand up to some abuse.

I have seen them a long time ago and there were ones for each province. I see them once in a while at a gas station or travel centre, but they are only for the area where the station is located, and pretty skimpy with details. I'm looking for a few from Ontario heading East and even into the North East States.

For some strange reason, I can't find what I'm looking for when searching on line. Anybody have a good source?

thx

If you have a smartphone, there is a great Rand McNally Atlas app as well.

I do have the TomTom Rider GPS, but I'm looking for hard copies to mark on and look for alternate routes.

I'll keep looking, but it was Rand McNally that I was looking for... Those were the ones I recall from a long time ago (before car GPS's were affordable). Thanks.

I still use mine - the same backroads mapbook from Canadian Tire that I bought in 2005 - they are excellent books!
