True, but once you un-suspend the hold, you can be waiting up to another 2 weeks for it to become available to you, so you end up trying to play a timing game, hoping it becomes available before you get too far into another book. It's even worse if you are trying to binge read a series.

Sometimes the convenience of slightly stretching fair use trumps other considerations (for some people, in some situations).

Putting a hold on popular books only makes it longer for others to get the book. If you cherry pick those most popular books with all your available slots, then it leaves the crumbs on the floor for the more casual readers.
