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.

So much reblog.

The Mockingjay Lives! Watch the EXCLUSIVE #OurLeaderTheMockingjay Teaser Trailer now!
The Spazmatics were playing at the hotel last night! It was so much fun to hang out and listen to some retro music.

We have been so many places so far this summer. I know how lucky we are to have incredible jobs that allow us to travel.
Iowa in the summer might be my favorite though. It is cool and green and lovely.
The farms here are family owned and have been here for generations. Most of the homes are 100 years old. It is beautiful.
I could stay here until it snows!

Is MS really Lyme Disease?

I came across an article today that postulated that MS, along with a number of other diseases including ALS, Parkinson’s disease, & fibromyalgia are all manifestations of Lyme Disease and its co-infections. 

The image above showing the parallel between MS & LD deaths in the US is startling. 

The article contains a lot of conspiracy theories, but makes you wonder!  Should long term antibiotics be a front line treatment for MS???

"… and to you, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end."

Here’s to book seven. Here’s to the years of anticipation before it and the years of discussion in its wake. Here’s to the boy who lived and how he changed everything.

And here’s to you, if you know that “the very end” isn’t happening anytime soon.

We are book eight.
