I use the library hold system A LOT. And I like to keep track of where I am in the queue, so I don’t end up with too many holds coming in at once.
But my library does something that I find weird. When the book comes back to your home library, it goes to the next person on the list from that library first instead of the next person on the list for the full county. That means that I’ll occasionally get an email saying a book has come in for me when I thought I was number 18 on the list for example because I’m the first person in New Berlin waiting for that book. It really messes with me, especially when it happens for multiple books at once.
I appreciate the library system trying to keep the cost of book transfers to a minimum, but it really messes up my reading plans when I am suddenly overloaded with books that come in before I expected them. You see…bookworm problem!
