Madonna's 'Sex' Tops List of Most Sought After Out-of-Print Books for 2015

Although I own -- and I'll bet you do too -- the most sought after out-of-print book for 2015, something tells me it's not worth a whole lot.

Via Chron:

Here are the top 10 most sought after out-of-print books for 2015.
1. "Sex," by Madonna (i.e. Louise Veronica Ciccione), 1992. The book itself is spiral bound and actually quite fragile making fine copies relatively rare; copies still found in their Mylar wrapping sheet command an extra premium. 
2. "Rage," by Stephen King (as Richard Bachman), 1977. "Rage" (originally titled "Getting It On") is the first novel by Stephen King published under the pseudonym Richard Bachman in 1977. 
3. "Unintended Consequences," by John Ross, 1996. A novel about gun culture, gun rights, and gun control in the United States through the 20th century
4. "Promise Me Tomorrow," by Nora Roberts, 1984. Roberts has gone on record to say that this novel is so bad that she will never allow it to be republished, and that her fans should probably avoid it.
5. "Alla Prima: Everything I Know About Painting," by Richard Schmid, 1999. A comprehensive instructional book on painting.
6. "Finding the Winning Edge," by Bill Walsh, 1998. Biography of 3-time Super Bowl winning coach of the San Francisco 49ers.
7. "The Vision and Beyond, Prophecies Fulfilled and Still to Come," by David R. Wilkerson, 2003. Wilkerson believes that we are now living in the time the Bible refers to as "the beginnings of sorrows," racing toward Armageddon.
8. "Permaculture: A Designers' Manual," by Bill Mollison, 1990. Considered by many to be the definitive resource for permaculture study.
9. "Halloween," by Curtis Richards, 1979.  Novelization of John Carpenter's horror classic.
10. "Mastering Atmosphere & Mood in Watercolor," by Joseph Zbukvic, 2002.  Zbukvic introduces the watercolor clock as a means to manipulate watercolor materials.

WOW!! I bought a in good condition used copy quite a few years ago for 50 bucks. Glad I picked it up now. I was just looking at it as I'm packing to move.

My copy unspooled off the spine, so I took it back and they couldn't replace it. Didn't like it that much anyway : -/
