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.

here’s an idea, pay writers decent wages for writing, get more books

NIKE’S NEW STAR-STUDDED DEREK JETER COMMERCIAL WILL GIVE YOU GOOSEBUMPS

Respect. More than any other emotion, that’s the feeling Derek Jeter has commanded throughout his 20 years in Major League Baseball. As the Yankees shortstop enters the halfway turn of his farewell season, Nike’s Air Jordan brand (a longtime sponsor of Jeter) has released an incredible commercial to celebrate his final year.

Watch the full commercial for even more sports cameos here.

Whenever you’re going through a bad day just remember, your track record for getting through bad days, so far, is 100%; and that’s pretty damn good.

My friends didn’t come to my shower. None. Not a single one.

Of course they have their reasons, but none attended. How am I supposed to feel?

Our Wedding Shower was today. We had a blast!

Thank you to my wonderful sister and awesome cousin for hosting the event.

Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?

You are so right Avril.

Blossom

is gonna be on tonight at 9pm on the Hub!!! I cannot wait, I am so excited to watch it again. It has been years.
