Greetings, salutations, and welcome back to another twist-ending, edge of
your seat, officially approved edition of the High Demand Hold digest.

 

Because really, what other enjoyable list includes James Comey, Bill
Clinton, and Led Zeppelin.  And just to be a music-dork for a moment, the
recently remastered Led Zeppelin triple album "How the West was Won"
includes the epic Moby Dick 20-minute drum solo, plus the full 30-minute
version of Dazed and Confused.  Wow.  

 

This list includes of the highest holds to items ever recorded (28 holds on
a single Blu-ray + DVD combo pack of "Father Figures"). If the very general
estimate of 5 circs every 3 months when a feature film is moving through a
3-week loan period, it should clear the list by late summer 2019.  But time
will tell.

 

So cheers, as always thanks for the positive feedback that people
occasionally send my way, and happy browsing.

 

Josh
