Our library has a special section for Hot Books - recent bestsellers which you can only take out for one week because they're so popular.

Excellent thinking. Gone Girl? Yep. The Girl On the Train? Certainly. Fifty Shades of Grey? Alright if you must.

But Wolf Hall? Maybe not so much. I'm sure there are many people who could knock it off in a week. But I suspect that the overlap between those people and the ones who have been prompted to pick it up on impulse at the library now because they've seen it on TV is fairly small.

I know what you are saying but if it discourages even one person who would take it because it was on the TV and then hang on to it for 3 weeks and still not read it then the policy has done some good. I am one of those people for whom a week is borderline for that size of book (I could read it in the time if it was good but not if it was slow) but I have already been warned off.
