My library has 9 people on the waitlist ahead of me, but there are loads of copies so I should get it in about a month. My friend's copy is doing the rounds in another state.
Are you currently in Antartica?
I'd be curious to know, in an ad hoc way, what your fellow compatriots take to read with them whilst there.
Do you all use ereaders? I guess there's also a paper library - with books people have read and left in the library?
I guess also that using the internet is not a problem, and that 'isolation' has been addressed somewhat by internet usage?
Good for you by the way ..... intriguing way to earn a living.
