speaking of how one relates to one’s own past

here’s me & Peter last June at the Bottom of the Hill playing through the entirety of the first Mountain Goats tape in sequence, which was kind of a ridiculous thing to do and which I ended up enjoying rather a lot

I love the Beatles so much that sometimes I think I’ll explode.

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 

While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.

That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating. 

I couldn’t hit the reblog button fast enough.

I literally got an email about this from Amazon and read it and was like “oh cool! Maybe I will do that. Kind of expensive though. And sounds a little like what…… the public library does……………………. for free JK not doing this”
