Who’s on First?

Two sports books in the headlines this week are predicted to be losers:

Who has it right? It looks like NPR is the best predictor; Amazon shows the just-released Radomski book at #952, while the Torre book is at #6 even though it isn’t available yet.

Library hold patterns in four large library systems also back up NPR:

  • Torre — total of 46 copies on order, with 144 holds
  • Radomski — total of 46 copies on order, with 9 holds

(Yes, that’s right, the total copies add up to exactly the same number, even though the individual libraries ordered different quantities of each title.)
