🔗 libraries vs. publishers

publishing conglomerates don’t care about readers; they only care about customers. If they had their way reading would be 100% digital, because they continue to own and have complete control over digital books, which cannot therefore be sold or given to others. They are the enemies of circulation in all its forms, and circulation is the lifeblood of reading.

Circulation is a word worth dwelling on. Even at rest, there is constant circulation of certain resources.
