This was Amazing post by Marie! I can relate to all the points discussed in her post. My
viewsrant on the topic is like this (which I comment back on her post as well)-
I’m from India. In my hometown, we have two library, one is public library that has more non-English novels than English one (that is also not latest ones) another is British Library which is far from my house and it’s not public library so NO to non-members!

I also know that I got lucky enough in the past eight months to get in touch with some publishers and receive some ARCs and books early on and I am…
