At least that means you really, really want to read it! I'm most bothered by OD books that turn out to be mediocre, but I finish them at least in part because OD books can be a now or never (or at least several weeks, if not months, before you can get it again) proposition. I want to be a lot choosier about what I put on hold, so at least when I have to re-arrange my reading to accommodate a book that's finally become available to me (and why do several books always all show up at once? the perennial OD plaint), it's because it's a book that I really do want to read.
