Service Manuals

What are the best service manuals for Goats out there? I scoped out the factory manuals at $185 (not ready for that yet). I tried to find Chiltons and Haynes manuals but came up empty handed. I saw a few PC based DVD-Roms but I would really not like to bring my Laptop to the garage.

If most of you like the computer based manuals I suppose I could get out of the stone age but i would prefer an old fashioned book.

What does everyone use?

I use the factory manual. It was something like $166 with tax and shipping/handling. It's really the only way to go.

Edit: I notice that you said $185. You must be referring to the guy on eBay that is selling a used set for more than new ones cost. He's been trying to sell those since sometime in 2009. Here's the links to Helm Inc. where you can buy a new one:
2004
2005
2006

2005 Pontaic GTO - CGM 6 Speed (My car)
2017 Chevrolet Colorado 2WT (My daily driver)
2010 Mercedes Benz C300 Sedan (Wife's car)
2014 Kia Rio LX (Wife's daily driver)
