C & C++ much less so than in the past it would seem.  (IMHO that's a
good thing from an educational perspective.)

hmm..  A couple of years ago I purchased Practical Common LISP from there.
I found that Dymocks in Rundle Mall always had a good selection of Python,
Perl & PHP books.

The book market for Python and other dynamic languages seems to have a
higher ratio to traditional lanuages than what the job market suggests.
Perhaps it's because dynamic languages have higher adoption from
programmers outside of their employment ?
