Below is a listing of popular books related to the Modula-3 language, including on-line sources for purchasing the respective books. Each supplier listed at least two Modula-3 books, and their site had a relatively easy to use purchasing system.
The pricing information is based on the purchase of 1 book by itself, using the lowest cost shipment method to an East Coast US address unless otherwise noted.

This book is the original definitive language reference. It includes the language definition as well as descriptions of the standard libraries for Modula-3, and how they are used. It also contains the reasoning behind many of the design decisions that molded the language into its present state.
This book is out of print, but Amazon.com will try to find a used copy for you.
Harbison's book is a complete guide to writing correct and maintainable programs in Modula-3. It contains a complete discussion of object-oriented programming: including objects, methods, classes, inheritance, concurrent programming and Modula-3's support for threads and semaphores.

This book is an introductory programming text that uses Modula-3 for its examples. The main focus of the book is to give a clean and comprehensive introduction to programming for beginners of a computer science study. It starts with traditional programming concepts and moves toward advanced topics such as object-oriented programming, parallel & concurrent programming, exception handling, and persistent data storage techniques. The book also presents a large number of complete examples written in Modula-3.
For some reason there is an alternative ISBN number. I suspect that it has to do with a floppy disk being included, or a slightly modified reprint of some sort. Also look under ISBN 0-387-57912-5.
