A monthly post looking at what books Abnormal Returns readers purchased at Amazon in the prior month has become very popular with our readers. It serves as a great list for readers looking for investment-related books for everyone on their holiday list. The top two books on the list were the subject of one our Amazon Money and Markets blog posts. Nearly 36% of purchases were of a single copy so I have omitted them. Below are the books (combined print and Kindle) that our readers purchased for November 2012:
