    I’m excited about the possibility of a Tortall series! But yes, *please let it be good*…

    And I’m too mad about the Macmillan ebook nonsense to write a coherent letter of complaint to them yet. Need to let myself cool down a little first — but not too much.

      I’m so frustrated with the publishers over library ebook lending. They seem to think that they are losing a lot of sales because people can borrow the book from the library. But I think a lot of library borrowers wouldn’t pay for a new copy of every book they borrow; they can’t afford to. I read upwards of 75 to 125 new books per year. There’s no way I could purchase all of them at list price when they first come out. I buy only the ones I really want to own in hardcover or trade. The rest, I borrow, or read an ARC (if I’m lucky), or wait until I can find a used copy at a price I can afford. The library lets me read authors I don’t need to own, but it also introduces me to authors whose books may subsequently end up on my “buy it new” list.

      I’m about equal parts over-the-moon and trepidatious about the possible Tortall series… and wondering which books they will adapt first. The series could be fantastic, or horrible, or just meh. Fingers crossed for fantastic!
