I think what happens (at least with me) is that the holds are so long some people quit waiting and buy the book so the hold lines get a bit shorter. There are so many books out there though -- I usually wait it out!Gerry wrote: ↑Mon Dec 16, 2019 10:16 pmOkay Ellie, you got me! I now have 'A SIngle Thread' on hold. I was super lucky to have 'The Handmaids Tale' arrive before 'The Testaments' seeing as of this morning I now have both. There had to have been one lot of cancellations! Have been so super busy preparing for my family home for the holidays that I have only have managed a few chapters before I fall into bed.
I just started "The Silent Patient" by Alex Michaelides. It's about a woman who kills her husband and then no longer speaks -- she is in an asylum and a psychotherapist is trying to find her story.
