I'm # 63 in line for Jennifer Weiner's new book, and it's still showing "On order." Guess I'm in for a bit of a wait...

That really stinks, Cat. I wouldn't like that at all.
Yep, sounds like you'll be waiting for a little while, Rudi.

At my library if you want to put your name on the list for a book, we also have to pay 50 cents but they claim it is to cover the cost of the postcard they mail you letting you know the book is now in and ready for you to pick up.

What a rip off! I can't believe that they charge you. Whenever we request anything through the online library catalog it automatically requires us to enter our email address so an email notice can be sent when the item(s) is ready for pick up. I think this makes much more sense than charging to mail a stupid postcard.

We don't even get a postcard, just an automated phone call.
