"Spare" in scarce supply in San Antonio
If you're looking to borrow a copy of "Spare," Prince Harry's bestselling tell-all memoir, you're going to have to wait.
Driving the news: The last time we checked San Antonio Public Library's catalog for "Spare," there were more than 2,500 holds on books, e-books and audiobooks.
- You might have better luck buying the book. The website for local Nowhere Bookshop shows "Spare" in stock for $38.
- We aren't alone in the royal frenzy, as our colleague Shane Savitsky reports.
What they're saying: Troy Hoyles, the library's collection strategist, tells Axios that 675 copies are currently in rotation.
- "Over 2,500 holds on five different formats is probably a record — we do not track record holds, but I cannot recall a title having this much demand, or demand this quickly," he said.
