This is not the Victorian age and we do not need to allow the impoverished access to literature. Say what?

Um, yeah.  British children's author Terry Deary claims that libraries are pointless in the UK because no one uses them but at the same time, they are putting book stores out of business and making it impossible for authors to make a living. 

Read a fabulously snarky explanation of it here.

Thank goodness I live in the United States where more people are using libraries than ever before and I don't have to worry about some random author saying that my profession is pointless.
