While it is nice when a book sells a lot more than the initial estimate, there's more wasted money involved on my part, because the cost to print drops as I print more at a time.

    So, SOD has less reprints than OTOPCs because I have gotten better at estimating over time, not because it is less popular.

    Also, for the record, the number of printings for each book is:

    DCF - 4
    OtOoPCs - 5
    NCftPB - 3
    SoD - 3
    WaXP - 1
    DStP - 1
    SSaDT - 0.8
