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 :/

THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE

I have a problem wearing lipstick that isn’t as at least as black as me.

Like, I have worn black lipstick almost exclusively for 2 years. And my back up color is dark purple. I even have a hard time wearing red. I just think I look cute in it, but I wish I could pull off a pink. Maybe it’s my aesthetics? Idk like I wear a lot of black, but I also dress very colorful with a lot of mixed patterns. I just don’t think I can take my look to another level when I keep to  the same thing…… but I also look bomb as hell in black lipstick.
