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 recently bought a Kobo instead of a Kindle and articles like these reinforce my decision.
If my library hadn’t been nearly destroyed in the flood (and the next best “good” library 20 miles away and really inconvenient for me to get to) I probably wouldn’t even have considered it.
As it is, I plan to either buy the books via the Kobo site or if possible the author or publishing house page (like how New Harbinger does it.)

me. ;v

as much as i would like to draw myself with ten heads and six wings all the time, it takes forever, so i made a condensed version. it’s not quite me, but it’s enough that i can call it myself. moreso than my old persona anyway.

i still haven’t picked out an angel name yet (shrugs)

edit: holy shit referring to this as “me” and “myself” was not an accident. stop tagging my personal characters, especially this one, with “omg me!!!” thanks. christ.
