Reblog If You Haver Ever Used One of These Or Just Know What It Is
Childhood memories :’)
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’m a full Tebow supporter & I really want him to get a chance.. I’ll say neutral because the NFL is weird.. Neutral because a team might get desperate & give him a shot, but at the same time teams can be “hard headed” to let him get on the team.. bring the media attention & everything else Tim has.
Tebow came in and did what a QB was suppose to do.. lead on the field and give the team the best chance to win, but even though he did that he was let go because he didn’t do it the conventional way.
If Tebow did what he did & didn’t win games, and was a problem in the lockerroom then I understand not bringing him on. The way he treated the entire Jets thing was perfect & hopefully he gets his shot. AS A QB.. Nit a TE or an RB or even a wildcat QB but a Quarterback.
