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.

So much reblog.

Touts…as “Netflix For Books!”…you mean…A LIBRARY?

This makes me sick.
Signal boosting this in the hopes that someone decides to join their local library instead of supporting selfish, money-grubbing companies with no regard for a community. Please join me, this is important for our future.
Imagine if we had no libraries, and this $150 a month was your only choice.
That’s where we’re headed. Support your local library, not greedy corporate monsters.

When the Avengers watch the Nolan Batman movies during movie night Tony picks apart all the science problems with the batgear and explains them loudly to everyone else. Secretly he sometimes tries to build Batman’s gadgets when he’s bored.

Bruce Banner is a vegetarian and he learned to cook while he was on the run. His specialty is Indian food.


Ah! I agree so much. Yes.

Alright guys listen up!

novacaineexe:

The Newton County animal shelter in Indiana is going to be shut down.

Why is this such a big deal? Because It’s a no kill shelter.

Newton County does not want to fund a no kill shelter anymore.

The dogs in there have until August 1st, until they are killed.

So people need to adopt them, or help fund it, and get it to $3000.

So I swallowed my pride and made this. Yes I am desperate.
I know you folks aren’t full of money either, so please if you can’t donate just click the reblog button. Maybe someone else sees this and can help.
Just don’t tell my mom.

Eric Carle meets George R.R. Martin…

AWESOME.
