More Harry Potter

Just for fun (and since I have several other books on hold), I went to the Fairfax County Public Library (FCPL) website to see where I would be on the list to check-out the new Harry Potter. Even though the library system has 323 copies throughout the 20 or so locations, my position in the holds queue is 1292! Both the number of copies and my number in the queue has to be a record for FCPL.

Just as a comparison, when I first reserved 1776 by David McCullough and A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby my position in the holds queue was approximately 150-175. I am currently #49 and #63 respectively. This should work out well since I'll have a few more books to read after Harry Potter.
