More copies to meet demand
Auckland Libraries has been inundated with requests from readers wanting to get their hands on awardwinning book The Luminaries.
The 832-page book written by Mt Eden’s Eleanor Catton won the prestigious Man Booker Prize earlier this month.
Since the announcement the book has been in hot demand with more than 1700 customer requests made to Auckland Libraries.
There is already 118 copies held across the 55 libraries but collections manager Louise LaHatte says it is ordering 145 more to meet demand.
Ms LaHatte says the last book to come close to the same level of requests was erotica novel 50 Shades of Grey.
