Out-of-Print But Not Forgotten has recently come up with a Top 10 list of the "most sought-after out of print books in America in 2006" and, with maybe one exception, they are all big surprises to me.
1. Sex (1992) by Madonna

2. Football Scouting Methods (1963) by Steve Belichick

3. Touch Me Again (1978) by Suzanne Somers

4. Man in Black: His Own Story in His Own Words (1975) by Johnny Cash

5. Treasury of Great Recipes (1965) by Mary and Vincent Price

6. The Principles of Knitting (1988) by June Hemmons Hiatt

7. The Lion’s Paw (1946) by Robb White

8. The Secret of Perfect Living (1963) by James Mangan

9. Once a Runner: A Novel (1978) by John L. Parker, Jr.

10. One Way Up (1964) by John F. Straubel

The only book in the list that doesn't really surprise me is the Johnny Cash title because of the popular biographical film Walk the Line that was largely based on this particular book. How does Madonna do it? This is one Top 10 list on which I never expected to find this particular semi-talented celebrity's name. And who knew that Suzanne Somers had written two books of poetry and that anyone remembered them? That's the beauty of the relationship between readers and books...there seems to be a book for every reader and a reader for every book.
