I'm starting to run out of books to read, so I'm gonna have to make a new order. Here is what I have thus far:
Economics for Real People: An Introduction to the Austrian School (2nd edition)
Economics in One Lesson
Concise Guide to Economics, The
Critique of Interventionism
Mises and Austrian Economics: A Personal View
Omnipotent Government: The Rise of Total State and Total War
Road to Serfdom, The
Austrian Theory of the Trade Cycle and Other Essays, The
Capital and Production
Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth
Two Essays by Ludwig von Mises
Economic Science and the Austrian Method
Foreign Policy of Freedom, A
I've already decided to get Human Action, Man, Economy & State, America's Great Depression. Anything else that I should get? Have I missed something essential?
Also, does anyone know if Pillars of Prosperity is any good?
The God of The Machine, by Isabel Paterson is a personal favorite; I'll probably end up checking the first two on your list at some point.

I would recommend:
"For a New Liberty" - Murry Rothbard
What has Government done to our money?" - Murry Rothbard
"Democracy, the God that Failed" - Hans Herman Hoppe

you know what is great? Ballve's Essentials of Economics. I'm really thrilled with this book--it had vanished for a couple of decades. Now it is back. Everyone here would learn from it. It is clear, sober, and beautifully written -- and also Misesian in every way. tip top.

Damn it. I meant to get that, but forgot all about it since it wasn't in my wishlist. And it was only $10, which is nothing to us in Euroland.
I ended up ordering:
Human Action (The Scholars Edition), America's Great Depression, Pillars of Prosperity, Man, Economy, and State, The Ultimate Foundation of Economic Science, The Keynesian Episode, Principles of Economics, Epistemological Problems of Economics, Theory and History and Money, Bank Credit, and Economic Cycles.
Shipping isn't cheap, but I still end saving massively. That, and I haven't been able find a single book by any of the Austrian economists here in Finland. I did find Keynes' General Theory in a big bookstore in Helsinki; it was mighty dusty and had a price tag of 95 euros ($150 or so).
