This week Kindred in Death by J.D.Robb was released this past week. I was lucky and got to read an early copy, so I didn’t need to make the tough decision to buy or to borrow. However, as the economy still stands in flux I couldn’t help but wonder if the pricing war that I’ve heard about regarding the preordering of certain books was effecting the number of holds at my local library.
Earlier this year I did a blog about the number of holds on certain books, and really wasn’t surprised by what I had found, but this time I was amazed! My local library is ordering ten copies of Kindred In Death and as of the writing of this article should I want to place a hold I would be number sixteen. Should I have placed a hold on it on the day of release I would have been number ten. An online friend checked into placing a hold for Kindred in Death and found out that her library is getting four copies and she will be number thirteen on the hold list.
