it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same

I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life

For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw

WHAT

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.

Touts…as “Netflix For Books!”…you mean…A LIBRARY?

This makes me sick.
Signal boosting this in the hopes that someone decides to join their local library instead of supporting selfish, money-grubbing companies with no regard for a community. Please join me, this is important for our future.
Imagine if we had no libraries, and this $150 a month was your only choice.
That’s where we’re headed. Support your local library, not greedy corporate monsters.

Well that’s what I thought when the Kindle and ebooks first came out. NOW people are scared?

I would have threw out 115$ shoes if I didn’t use the Toe problem one. God bless this post.

I’ve given up trying to correct people.

Honestly mine isnt even hard but people are dumb

Seriously how hard is it to spell Laurel?! It’s literally Lauren with an L

BOTH oh my god just sound it out it’s not that hard people see more than 6 letters in my last name and freak out like it yiddish or something

how hard is it to get that my last name is thornton. not forton.

BOTH

AHAHAAHAAHAAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAAH
AMERCANS NEVER GET MY LAST NAME RIGHT

I once got Kloöey.

How hard is it to spell Megan? There is no “h” no extra “a” or whatever. Think someone tried to add a “y” once. Also, the “t” in my last name gets left out SO F-ING MUCH. Don’t even get me started on my middle name. No one seems to pronounce it right.

do you ever get in one of those moods where you’re like feeling okay but you’re really sad at the same time and you just want to talk to someone and make them hug you but you feel annoying so you kind of just sit there being really sad

When Jack Warner was casting the movie My Fair Lady, Julie Andrews, who played the original Eliza Doolittle on Broadway, was overlook for the part, that was given to Audrey Hepburn.

That made her available to accept Mr. Disney’s invitation to play Mary Poppins.

At the 22nd Golden Globes, when she won the best actress award (she was up against Audrey for My Fair Lady), she had her sweet revenge.

how to shade, with class.

Julie Andrews is the queen of everything
