Macmillan Publishing’s asking for too much!
I’m a full supporter of giving authors the proper support and due they’ve worked hard for. I’m also a firm believer that readers should be able to access what they can from their public library. So, why is Macmillan putting an embargo on how many ebook copies of a title they are allowed to have for their entire system?!
There are some folks who rely on their local libraries because that is the closest resource they have! Others depend on the library because it is what they can afford. And then there are those who like to borrow an ebook version before they a) buy their own digital copy and/or b) buy a physical copy of the book. Heaven’s to Betsy, a reader discovers a new author to support that they might not have otherwise found on their own!
What are your thoughts, dear reader?
