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.

womp womp

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.

this shit annoys me so much cuz like

libraries r important for so many reasons, not just books

libraries r rly rly important community resources, the library was where i went to get away from ppl after school, the library was where i went to get away from home if i needed to get away from my parents, the library is where i went when i needed quiet, the library is where i went to use the internet cuz my parents didnt like me using it at home

libraries r so fucking important resources, and kindles not gonna be providing safe spaces for anyone anytime soon

SUPPORT LOCAL LIBRARIES.

Libraries also contain materials that will teach you how to spell. Because spelling is not just for the internet.

Talk Like a Physicist

scienceisbeauty:

It’s very easy, just rehearse these phrases… and try use them with confidence in every conversation.

  • Use “canonical” when you mean “usual” or “standard.” As in, “the canonical example of talking like a physicist is to use the word ‘canonical’.
  • Use “orthogonal” to refer to things that…

Seriously though, if you don’t think asexual representation is important, you need to get educated, because it is really hard to live in a sex-centric culture and not be interested in sex. 

I have seen so many posts about finding out about asexuality after joining tumblr and you know what word almost all over them have in common? Broken. 

And that’s fucked up.
