As of two days ago it was e-Pub only - also what I've seen on the amazon forums.
There were quite a few people reporting they could pre-order from their libraries.
I'm #2

I'm really surprised by how few have signed up. I haven't signed up for books 3-7 because there's no way I can read them all within 14 days. So I actually want people to sign up so I can space out the books over a 3 month period. So far not enough people have signed up for Arlington's 5 copies of each book. I wonder if the few who have signed up for the first couple of books are using my strategy and not signing up for the subsequent books too

Meanwhile I'm 48 out of 64 for Malcolm Gladwell's Blink and there's one copy. I figure it'll be my turn in late 2013.

I read the originals in about a day each, so 2 weeks total would work. Sadly, only two copies at FLP and I'm way back on the lists.

Same here. Overnight marathon reading sessions which meant migraines the next day during class. The only exception was Deathly Hallows which took me a month to finish mostly because I didn't want it to end just yet. Not limited to just 14 days, though. The maximum allowed check-out for our library is 21 days.

It usually takes me at least 2-3 weeks per book. I only average 1/2 to an hour of reading daily.

Sleep is overrated (so is saving sick days)

Email them to ask them. The Mississauga library system doesn't list them yet nor are they on the Overdrive list of libraries that carry it. I emailed them to ask why they weren't on the Overdrive list and was told not to worry and that they are definately getting them.

Yours might be too & if not, then at least it'll let them know people out there want them.
