[minervacirc] High Demand Hold List - Will We Ever See Sunshine Again edition

Greetings, salutations, and welcome back to another monthly view of what
interests our beloved users.

 

Anyone looking for some popularly requested books on the last election
cycle, check out "Shattered: Inside Hilary Clinton's Doomed Campaign" which
currently has 45 holds on 1 copy.  A very fast clip for a non-fiction book,
especially since the record was created about two weeks ago.  

 

And just some random notes I wanted to pass along while scanning the list.

 

There are 17 holds on a single copy of Mick Herron's book "Slow Horses".  An
alternate printing of the same book is currently held by 11 libraries, with
most copies sitting on the shelf.

 

There's a DVD copy of "The Legend of Tarzan" with 10 holds on 1 copy.  On a
different record of the same flick, there are multiple copies available.

 

And, after appearing on this list for over two years, Julie Garwood's
"Wired" finally has a July 2017 release date.  In celebration of that fact,
highlights from the May High Demand Hold list from 2015 are at the bottom of
this list.

 

Thanks!

 

Josh
