Even a large system like New York is unlikely to have 40 copies of Fahrenheit 451 and have each of those copies checked out for 10 years running and have them checked out for only a week at a time. But if they did, it would be almost enough to catch up to Charlotte's Web.

To Kill a Mockingbird would only need 25 copies continuously checked out for a week at a time for 10 years to catch up to Wild Things so it is a little closer to realistic.

Fahrenheit 451 - 287 of 329 copies available

Well, looks like NYPL has 329 copies not including the audiobook copies. And right now, 42 copies are borrowed. So yes, I do think that the eBook version could change the results if it's not included.
