Our Readers Favorite Books For 2016

Updated on

We looked at our Amazon Affiliates account to see what were the most popular books among our readers. We looked at all the data from January through December 20th 2016. Not surprisingly Ben Graham’s The Intelligent Investor was the most popular book – also there are probably more links on the site to the book but we decided to go by total sales and not a percentage of views per sale or different methodology. Anyway, there are some other value investing classics but also some newer books on value investing and some that are less business oriented but have been recommended by famous investors. IE The Lessons of History, by Will Durant recommended by Ray Dalio among others was the second most popular book of the year! See the full list below which includes both Audible books and physical books in descending order of most popular first.

For those into movies The Big Short was popular among readers almost as much as many of the books on this list (even though the book did not make the list).

Not a book but very popular too among our readers and Amazon currently has a sale All-New Echo Dot (2nd Generation) – Black and Nest Cam Outdoor Security Camera

Finally, if you are feeling charitable (we get a small percentage of sales – but it costs you nothing) these were among our most expensive items sold
