They have 8 copies on order, but they will probably look at demand and order more.  As #101, I will probably have to wait 3 or 4 months unless they bring in another 20 or 30.  Obviously it's a very important book.

Then why hasn’t my library ordered it?  It’s strange, not even a pending notice.

That's a good question.  Ask your local branch manager to find out for you.

They aren’t in yet.  Maybe Covid stopped all their ordering practices.  I checked another district and they ordered books in March.

My system has had catch up to do on ordering new books also.  I really don't know if they have totally caught up or not.  I am deeply concerned about their purchasing in the new fiscal year.  The budget, which never recovered from the Great Recession, will be cut again because of the decline in tax revenues.

No. I learned the hard way that publicity tend$ to $ell more political book$ than content.

I’ve heard grumblings about the library budget too.  Maybe That’s why there aren’t many new books coming in.

Isnt it always like that? The books get huge ad budgets, they are in the bestseller list for a while but can be poorly written, rambling messes.

He's hoping this big case will assure his reelection.  He'll handle all news releases very carefully.  As I said, he tends to showboat.  This will give him opportunity to get a lot of free publicity.
