Why do publishers HATE libraries?!
In This Episode...
Okay, so there's a war happening between libraries and publishers (Macmillan specifically) that more people need to be talking about. This WILL change how libraries function and how quickly YOU'LL be able to get your latest ebooks/audiobooks.
A huge shout-out to @Kidsilkhaze for making US aware of this ridiculousness through her tweets!
