Thanks everyone for your help.
@Jessica, yep, I use Heisig's book already, and supplement it with other literature etc. (Natsume Soseki is fantastic), but thanks for the kanji site though. I was more concerned about whether actually learning the necessary stroke order would be necessary, but I figure I might as well get it done anyway.
Oh, and I found a really good importer: www.nippon-export.com . I used to get all my books from benippon, but they closed down after the earthquake. :(
Yesasia is great too though, I've got some stuff from them before, especially since they offer free shipping on orders over $50.
Thinking of doing the JLPT N3 :/ so if anyone has any tips on how to learn the required kanji and their compounds, please share!
Thanks again. ;)
