What actually unites the US and the UK

Or at least the 'bilbliophiles' on either side of the Atlantic is interest in Madonna's magnum opus, 'Sex'. The long out of print book was quite the succès de scandale at some point in the early '90s, and booksellers made a point of sealing copies on sale. Apparently.

Anyway, bookfinder.com has published a list of the ten most sought out of print books both here and there, with it 4th in the UK and third in the US. Given that even the most cursory googling will bring up the goods, I do wonder how said bibliophiles could have got so far as having the skills to use online book searching without having realised that.

Meanwhile, the most sought book in the UK is a history of English forests and a novel about long distance running leads in the US.
