Most requested books of 2022

August 2022

These are our most requested items of 2022.

For the current thirty most requested, search for our Hot Speed Read titles. You can't place a hold on the Hot Speed Read copy, they are first in, first served, but there is always another copy in the collection you can place on hold.

The list below is former Hot Speed Read titles where the initial rush for the titles has died down a little and the wait may not be so long for a great book. We remove five titles from our Hot Speed Read collection every month as their popularity wanes a little.
