View Full Version : How do I find a specific thread?
04-24-2009, 01:33 PM
I caught a remark in a thread (one of our numerous ones about DRM), to the effect that most authors don't oppose libraries, even though they lose sales because of them. I just found a quote on Goodreads about that and wanted to go back and add it to the thread - but I can't find the thread! I searched for "library" and of course got a million results. Is there a better way that I'm missing?

Is it this one?
And so what? What does that have to do with the moral argument here? What is the moral argument making it OK for libraries to lend books against a specific authors wishes? And why is that argument not applicable to the situation where we freely can copy a book we borrow from the library without cost and doing it very fast?
Please provide evidence in which authors, or a single author, have/has banded together in an attempt to have their works removed from libraries. Writers are typically the most vocal PROPONENTS of libraries.

By the way... where in Illinois do you live?

Hi, rebarnmom. Yes indeed that IS the post I was referring to, thank you so much! And I live in what I think is termed North Central Illinois - directly south from Rockford, almost at the junction of 88 and 39. Are you anywhere near that? We could have an MR meetup!

I live in Mount Morris, just north of Dixon. I grew up in Rockford. I would sure love to see the Astak EZ Reader! It was one of my choices, before I got my Sony PRS-700. Know anyone else in the area?

Oh for goodness' sake... I'm in Dixon!! Yes, we definitely need to make plans!!! I know BadGoodDeb is in the Chicago area, but that's all I know of. Deb, wanna head out to the sticks sometime soon?

I'm in Dixon, more than anyplace else (outside of home)! I've sort of felt alone in the "sticks" as far as eBook reading is concerned! That's amazing!!

ROFL!! Umm... If you shop at County Market, (or shopped at Jewel in the past) we may already know each other. I work(worked) cashier and Service Desk both places. That would be too funny!

Of course I shop there! That's where I found the carbonated juice that I like so much, called Switch. It's in the organics section there! I wrote about it in the thread about New Year's resolutions, as mine was giving up soda.
SMALL WORLD and getting smaller all of the time!! :bigwave:

I think I fixed the PM! Short w/Texas accent... got it!
Do you have plans for the MR donut day? It's been a long time since I had a good donut!!
04-26-2009, 09:52 PM
No plans as of yet for MR donut day - think we should share a dozen? And show off our readers at the same time? Oh, and yep, you fixed the PM, I sent you my number. MR meetup, here we come!!
