Previously, as I noted, as of May 1, there had been like 19 copies at the NYPL, with a bunch of holds. Then today, aÂ reader sent me an email saying they got a gigantic order in
Just wanted to let you know that I finished reading your book this morning (I thought NYPL was never going to get to me because I was about 400th in line… until they suddenly got a huge shipment and I ended up with a brand new copy!)
She checked online and 99 copies now available, which is a dramatic increase from a few weeks earlier. It’s interesting. I noticed a similar increase in my co-publishee’s book, The Geography of Bliss (which shot up from 40ish to 170+ copies) and wondered if there comes a time when the publisher just decides to release more copies, or if the libraries just order more or what.
Incidentally, now that the computer system is back up, I now know that the Queens Library system has 47 copies of the book, about 10 alone of which are at the Flushing branch (my favorite, and where I gave a talk in early June).
