Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time

I am working my way through the thirteen volumes of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time (WoT) series in anticipation of the final volume (A Memory Of Light) to be released next January. Do you know when it might be added to our catalog so I can get on the request list? Specifically, I'm interested in requesting the book-on-CD version of A Memory of Light. Thank you. BTW, the WoT audio books are OUTSTANDING! Readers (no, performers!) Michael Kramer and Kate Reading have done a magnificent job of really bringing to life the complex WoT world. After thoroughly enjoying several of the books in print form on my prior pass through the series, I picked up an audio version of the next one for a long driving trip. It was even better!!! The individual characters come to life. The WoT world is somehow richer. (And you don't have to stumble over the unfamiliar long names, like Tel'aran'rhiod.)

The book and audio formats will be released on January 8, 2013. I have forwarded your email to the audio book collection librarian and when she orders it, she'll put you on hold if you are a Canton/Plymouth resident. I don't know when she will order audio books for 2013. Our current budget year ends October 31, 2012. Thank you for contacting us.

This is a friendly follow-up to your September reply. Do you yet know if/when the audio book for A Memory of Light (the 14th and last book in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series) might be ordered? If budget constraints have affected this, should I be looking into a MeL request?
Thank you.

We still have not received the book or the audio version as the release date is January 8th 2013. You will be notified when we receive the Book on CD. Thank you for using our online reference source "AskCpl".

I'm sorry my question wasn't clear. Usually you add books to the CPL catalog when they are ordered but weeks before they are received (so people can get on the request list). A Memory of Light has not yet shown up there and, hearing that there are budget concerns, I wondered if ordering new books for 2013 had been delayed/reduced. If so, this might mean that I should look for another source for the book.

Thank you for your interest in this title. We can start to order from the 2013 budget on January 7th or 8th. You can send me your library card number, and I'll be happy to put you on the short waiting list for the BCD.
