Jonesing for some library stats?

What do these three books have in common? If you've been to a library in the UK in the past decade, you just might know. Kiddielit--rock on!

I hate it when I don't know something...but I have no idea what your title means....

According to urbandictionary.com there are 22 separate meanings of the word "to jones," and I have seen the phrase itself on at least one site attributed to the Grateful Dead and a song where they were referring to chemical dependencies. In this case, I was using the word to mean "to have a strong need, desire, or craving for something". So, in that sense, the title of this post is asking, "Do you have a strong desire or need for library stats?" with the inference that, if the reader does, he or she can satisfy that craving by reading my post, which features....library stats.

Was I being too obscure?

Oh no, I completely understood what you were talking about by saying "Jonesing". It's something I grew up saying it(I'm 30ish if that helps).

As for the similarity, sadly I'm not as confident in my knowledge of that piece of info.
