It seems like the show has gotten more buzz than the books. Still, my advice would be to ask your library to get the books - let them decide whether to get them or not. They'll be able to see how many times this first book has checked out, whether the series seems to be popular via interlibrary loan, etc. Who knows, they might also have a policy of waiting for a critical mass of requests for books before buying them.

Well, that's excellent advice. I shall do just as you suggest.

I'm still on my library's waitlist for this one.

Do you check to see where you are on the list? Or is that just me?

Yes, I watch the waitlist status like some folk watch stock tickers.

I'm patient until it says I'm "1 waiting" then it seems to take forever for whoever has it to return it.

I'm so glad it's not just me. I watch the way authors check their amazon rankings. I've got two I have to read soon because other people are waiting after me.

Knowing how I agonize waiting, I read library books first and return immediately after reading (even though ebooks eventually return themselves). I'm currently #16 in line for two copies.

I'm currently 1 of 2 and 2 of 3, and one is being held for me! Happy dance!
