With the 'old' system, the ePub and PDF formats were always the first to get snatched up, but I could frequently find available mobipocket offerings. I think the additional 'work' of adding the mobipocket reader with PID to one's computer is part of the reason.

Now, however, all three formats go to 'hold' status if even just one format is checked out.

I think wait times for digital books just got much longer
