Surely they buy in another copy if it has that many reservations?
At my library, if there are more than three or four reservations on a book, we buy another copy.

I must be the only person in the world who was disappointed in The Other Queen. :rolleyes:

I don't know very many people who have read it! I haven't managed it yet. Somewhat surprisingly my library seems to be buying the American edition, despite the fact that it has been out in the shops here for months.

It's still on order at my Library too. I am going to wait for it to come in. With PG it is either love it or hate it. So, will have to see.

Nope, I was disappointed also. Most published reviews I've seen, from US sources, have been tepid.

If I get a hardcover in the mail when it's out, someone here would be welcome to my ARC.
