BookFinder.com tracks the most sought-after out-of-print titles in America and updates their list annually. It’s an interesting list, usually populated by previously unheard-of books, but occasionally you find something of interest. This year’s list includes:

Cameron Crowe’s FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH, the 1981 book where Crowe, as a free-lancer for Rolling Stone magazine, went undercover at a California high school and wrote about his experiences. Crowe later wrote a screenplay based upon his book which eventually became the well-known film.

Madonna’s SEX, which I cannot understand how it’s not still in print considering her popularity and the subject matter.

Incongruous and seemingly unreadable texts such as these, all listed under Crafts, Hobbies and How-To:

THE PERSONALITY OF A HOUSE: THE BLUE BOOK OF HOME CHARM

OLD SOUTHERN APPLES

INTERIOR ALCHEMY: SECRETS FOR CREATING EXPRESSIVE AMBIENCE

A book entitled THE RECENTLY DEFLOWERED GIRL: THE RIGHT THING TO SAY ON EVERY DUBIOUS OCCASION, which can’t possibly be as good as its title.
