Hello Everyone!

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Crazy-For-Books and is now being hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. Every Friday, a new question is posted for bloggers to answer during the week. The purpose of the Book Blogger Hop is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and maybe even receive some new blog followers.

This week’s question is:

Have you joined the library reading app, Libby?

(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

The short answer to this question is no, I have not joined Libby. To expand on the answer, getting a library card is one of the many things I’ve been procrastinating. The library is close enough to my house, but the thought of adding something else to my to-do list is just too much to handle, so I keep putting it off. I also have a really old kindle and I don’t like reading on my phone, which leads to even more procrastination.

  1. No. The libraries in my area use Borrowbox, but I currently volunteer in a library near me. Libraries are easier to close when the volume of people increases online usage from library services. More libraries in my area may close to concentrate on the online world. Volunteer libraries don’t tend to do e-books either and some, I suspect will eventually close if real footfall decreases in those too.
    I also think people need to weigh up whether they want to try and save what’s left of the physical or have it online. Yes, it may be more convenient and faster (although not all books may be bought into the system)m they are also more portable, but there’s also how much screen time do you really want, especially if you’ve done your job all on screens. There’s also the folk who lose jobs to consider. For me, it is all about balance of the physical and the digital world. I don’t think there needs, nor should be a one or the other, but a fair mix of the two to spread usage, help eye health and help those relying on their jobs for a livelihood in all parts of the book industry.
