Don’t Want to Buy the Trump Tell-All? Here Are the Wait Lists at Portland-Area Libraries

Vancouver is your best bet.

President Donald J. Trump (Gage Skidmore)

Oregonians can't wait to read the latest gossip about President Donald Trump. Some will have to.

The early release of Michael Wolff's White House tell-all book, Fire and Fury, on Jan. 5 set off a shopping spree at Powell's Books, delayed orders at Amazon, and prompted long waiting lists at local libraries.

Does the frenzy to read Fire and Fury correlate with disapproval of the president? Perhaps. Here's the size of the waiting lists as of Jan. 8 at Oregon's biggest library systems, and across the river in Vancouver, Wash.
