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. 

Most libraries offer these services for free already - even ebooks and audio books. The fact that Amazon isn’t paying it’s authors is super shady though :/

not that i’m condoning the obviously shadier aspects of this business, but i just want to mention that i live in an unincorporated part of my town (i straddle two townships so we get to choose which township our home address is listed under), which means that my public library charges me a $200+ fee per year for a library card and buying books—regardless of if it’s at the barnes & noble or local independent bookstore—is still expensive. i have friends who live in very rural areas where public libraries and bookshops aren’t as comprehensive. obviously it’s important to me that authors are being fairly compensated for their work and i am fully aware that this is a blatantly capitalist move by amazon, but i also want to make sure we aren’t throwing people for whom this may be an actual affordable option to read more under the bus because unfortunately, not all communities have access to the same resources.
