Economists Of The World, Unite!

Today's Wikipedia featured article is Economics. A proud day for us students of the dismal science.

I'm in the mood to read something theoretical, either a classic like The Wealth of Nations, or a more introductory book like Naked Economics: Uncovering the Dismal Science, which would make explaining econ a bit easier to others. Any other suggestions?
I think Thomas Sowell's Basic Economics is an excellent start: http://www.townhall.com/bookclub/sowell.html

Follow that with Applied Economics, and of course Milton Friedman's Free to Choose is both a classic and contains very persuasive arguments for the non-economist.
