Well - If what we are really talking about after all is space and not
money ..One good reason to buy the newer feature films - is that they are
*never never* on the shelves because they are so popular. Thus they don't
take any space at all. We have reserve lists of nearly 100
patron names on many of our titles, so I don't actually see them
being a
shelving problem for years! As an aside - Does make you wonder why anyone
would add his name to such a list, given that he is looking at over a
year until he is called by the "robot" to say it is his turn! And it also
makes you realise that you have chosen something your patrons really
really want....
