[minervacirc] High Demand Hold Digest - Day Later and Dollar Short Edition

Greetings, salutations, and welcome back to the snapshot of what our
collective users want.

 

This month, we bid a fond farewell to Hillbilly Elegy, the little
autobiography that came from out of nowhere and seemed to act as if the more
copies that were purchased, the more people wanted it.  It has finally
surpassed the high-demand ratio of at least two holds for one copy so we
finally say farewell.  And the new kid on the block comes in the form of a
hermit in the woods of Maine.  Let's see how long Finkel can stay atop the
pile.  

 

So cheers, thanks for taking an interest in this report, and we will see you
next month!

 

Josh
