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.
