If that makes me an elitist, I plead guilty.

Here's the Overdrive link for last book I finished (in paper, purchased for $3.80 used):

I'd rate it high in quality, but, outside Canada, low in popularity. Therefore, probably does not make the cut.

This isn't to criticize people who take advantage of libraries that honor patron buy requests. If they are going to take requests, I guess yours is as good as the next person's.
