MacMillan dicking over Libraries- The situation
starting next month, whenever a Macmillan title releases, libraries can only buy one digital copy until it's been out for 8 weeks in the hopes that people will get pissed off and buy it themselves.
There is literally no benefit to this, as it fucks over the poor and/or those with disabilities, the authors that want people to buy their goddamn books, etc. I want to remind you: books being in libraries is a win for everyone involved.

@lapis What's the context for this? I don't know who MacMillan is...
@phobos_dthorga Tor the sci/fi fantasy imprint.
If you're curious, wikipedia has more imprints you might be familiar with
@lapis Ohh, so that's what an 'imprint' is! I was able to look it up now:
"An imprint is the name of the publisher, the place of publication and the date, usually printed on the title page of a book."
I think I'll bookmark this Toot :)
