I have had this book on order for several months. A few months ago I wrote a similar letter & my reply was that it was in the system & I should have it soon. A couple more months have passed but no book. You used to show it as "being ordered". At one time I had moved from #3 on wait list to #1. Now I am #1 & have been for awhile. Would appreciate if someone would check & just not tell me to wait a little longer.

I travel a lot & you are one of better libraries if I could just get this book!
