Thanks for the info. I wonder if I should put in a request at the library now. smile. The last time I waited until closer to the release date and was quite far down on the wait list. BTW, do you fans of Eragon know there is a sequel? The book was in our bookstore today and a knowledgeable patron noticed it was on the wrong shelf and told me, so I took it into the librarian. She was so happy to have it! Unfortunately, I forgot the title. There is a long hold list for it as well as Eragon.
