This picture represents all of the Sleepy Heads. 

Tom Mison is excited for Sleepy Hollow’s return, but doing his best to remain calm. 

Nicole Beharie is the overcome with emotion fangirl, simply cannot contain her feels. 

theorlandojones is set to go full on Kermit flail in advance of the premiere. 

Don’t forget Sleepy Hollow season two starts tonight. Don’t lose your head about it though. ;)

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.

And this is why I actively avoid the Kindle Prime Whatever Unlimited button. Even for an author I’ve never heard of and have no idea of the quality of the book I’m buying.

Georgia Police Kill Diabetic Black Man After Family Calls 911 Requesting Ambulance

A woman called 911 for an ambulance because she was worried that her 43-year-old fiance Jack Lamar Roberson was having complications with his diabetes. Instead, a police car showed up, and the officers walked inside and shot him four times. Roberson was unarmed and had his hands in the air when he was shot. His whole family - including his 8-year-old daughter - saw it happen.

Last year, the same county police force was responsible for the shooting of a 26-year-old unarmed black man. All officers are on administrative leave pending an investigation.

Smh

I’m sick.

I live in America and I still don't really know what Grits are. I do know that they can be cheese flavored.

I am not a fan of cheese so grits really aren’t winning any points for me here…

Grits are made from ground corn. I do not like non-sweet versions, at all. But put some butter and sugar in it, and I’m good. It’s not bad. For most people that don’t like it, it’s a consistency thing. 

I haven’t finished my coffee yet and my brain is not quite functioning so I thought that said girls not grits. then when it got to the cheese flavored part I got really confused, but also a vision of a cheeto colored woman, followed closely by a woman made of string cheese slowly being peeled down. 

I’m pretty sure I should go back to bed.
