Manyholds List

The list of current popular titles, the titles with the most holds on them, has been updated. It is always available from the catalog entry page.

This month only 8 nonfiction titles appear among the 55 titles with six or more people standing in line for them, though Kevin Phillips' American theocracy : the perils and politics of radical religion, oil, and borrowed money in the 21st century and Joan Didion's The year of magical thinking are in the top ten. (The Didion has been there for months.) Other nonfiction on people's radar includes Cobra 2 : the inside story of the invasion and occupation of Iraq / Michael R. Gordon and Bernard E. Trainor ; Eat, pray, love : one woman's search for everything across Italy, India and Indonesia / Elizabeth Gilbert ; A new earth : awakening to your life's purpose / Eckhart Tolle ; and Misquoting Jesus : the story behind who changed the bible and why / Bart D. Ehrman.

The other forty-odd high demand titles the passionate readers are waiting for are mysteries and general fiction. Personally, the one I'm holding my breath for is Donna Leon's Through a glass darkly. I can hardly wait for my next trip to Inspector Brunetti's Venice...
