Why check the books out to a patron? For one thing, it distorts your
circulation statistics for all those records. You should probably
create a list and run your queries on that.

Have you see the SQL reports library? Just browsing through it can be
helpful in giving a sense of what is possible. The "create from SQL"
reporting option is much more flexible than the "guided reports
wizard" option.
