Miscellania Of Self

Books, tea, and hugs!

Madoka walks into a bar and hits her head.

She apologizes at once to the bar.

Sayaka walks into a bar and hits her head.

To be fair, she cuts the bar in half in the name of justice.

Homura walks into a bar and hits her head.

Crap. Gotta go back in time now.

Kyoko walks into a bar and hits her head.

She eats the bar.

Mami walks into a bar and hits her head.

Haha. Just kidding.

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.

In Other News

Someone apparently tried to abandon their pet python in the Villas (my hometown). What an asshole.

I simultaneously feel bad for that poor snake and hope that my kitties stay safe.

[suspicious snape voice] “you’re saying your friend named remus lupin definitely isn’t a werewolf”

[shocked, disappointed james potter voice] “remus lupin, a werewolf?? is it because he’s named after a guy raised by a wolf? is it because his surname literally means wolf? well. you’re wrong. his middle name is john, there’s no way he could be a werewolf.”
