Really, Macmillan…really?

I mean, really? REALLY? It’s not like I have anything to say that my library colleagues have already expressed elsewhere on the Internet, but really? You came to this conclusion after you spoke to library systems and authors? By “library systems” and “authors,” you mean Amazon, right? Because you have data to back up your claim that library eBook borrowers are cutting that deeply into your pockets that this 2-month embargo is justified, then there’s a whole slew of data that you’re ignoring which says the converse. So, I simply ask again…really?
