Top 5 Books of readers of this site

Interesting to see what the top selling books you guys are buying (referred from this site to Amazon):

1. Richest Man in Babylon   27 sold (19 new + 8 used)

2. More Than You Know    23    (21 + 2)

3. Unexpected Returns: Understanding Secular Stock Market Cycles    22 (22 + 0)

4. Hedgehogging   17   (12 + 5)

5. Naked Economics: Undressing the Dismal Science    12    (10 +2)

Kind of fascinating; I would have thought the more expenseive books would have seen more used buying; The Richest Man in Babylon was about the same used or new if you qualified for free shipping
