      That is a cool list. I need to buy all my stuff through here…

      I should have started posting these lists a long time ago. Maybe I can mine some of our old Amazon sales data.

    3. Mike K Says:

      I ordered a bunch of those and thanks to the brilliant read who ordered my book.

    4. Whitehall Says:

      Now I’ll remember to buy through the Chicago Boyz link to Amazon.

      One of the great assets here, beyond the postings, are the commenters.

    5. Jonathan Says:

      Thanks, Whitehall, and agreed about the commenters.

      I’ll try to post and/or permalink more book lists from now on.
