Suggestion for New Title Purchase: Flash Boys

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014
Author: Lewis, Michael
Title: Flash Boys
Publisher & where & when published: W.W. Norton, April 2014
Where you saw this item mentioned: TV

A: You’ll be pleased to hear that I ordered a copy of this book just this morning. I’ve just amended the order to add a request in your name.  That means that when it gets here it will be rush processed and put on hold for you.  You should get an email from the library at that point.

It’s hard to predict exactly how long it will take for the book to be ready for you as that is dependent on how fast the publisher responds. If you need it quickly, I suspect most of the local public libraries will have multiple copies since it is such a popular title.

Please let me know if you have questions about any of this. I hope you enjoy the book!  Sounds like a good read.
