Pittsburgh's Purchase Circle

Over at amazon.com, they've come up with "purchase circles," lists of the most popular books purchased by buyers in certain regions and institutions.

Here's Pittsburgh's "purchase circle." We're a pretty self-absorbed lot: 5 of the top 10 books are about Pittsburgh or Western PA.

Not sure how they figure out what goes on the list. I checked out the Boulder, CO purchase circle. Other than the obvious navel gazing books, they have a book at #6 Lonely Planets : The Natural Philosophy of Alien Life (Hardcover) that is out of print!
