As usual, "progress" has resulted in a system that is much worse than before
I go to mylibraryname.overdrive.com. Quicker and easier.

I only read library books if I'm really in no hurry. Why? My local libraries rarely have the ebooks I want and the few they do carry often have waiting lists of *years*. It costs a lot for a library to license a single ebook.

I can assure you, you get some very niche book genre advertising on social media, regardless of your library checkouts. VERY. *hrm*

Certainly many commentards are sceptical. There are also various ways her reading choices could leak apart from the ebook back end providers.
I'm sceptical that Adobe, Bolinda, Overdrive or Libby would sell or pass on reading habits.

Using Amazon KU or Audible is likely to only be used by Amazon.

Info in Kobo Plus is likely to be only used by Kobo.

I've no idea about Everard (formerly Scribd). I'd be suspicious of the Internet Archive's Open Library because to start with it's ignoring copyright, so ethically selling your habits isn't a big stretch.
Does Google operate a lending Library?

Spotify bought Findaway Voices and now also does audio books. No idea what they are like on privacy but they seem to pay music artists poorly.

Services like Uber do make more money selling your metadata etc than the actual service!

Obviously using Facebook, Instagram, X/Twitter, many social media and Browsers with out various blocking (on many sites), Alexa, Siri, Cortana, Go Google, Clippy 2.0 AKA Copilot (almost an anagram) and AI LLMs is a more likely issue than whatever backend services a US Library uses.

There is no actual evidence in the article.

It's a slang derogatory label for people that make comments on the internet that are perceived by some to be stupid or some other waste of bits.

It's the "official"* term used for all people posting comments here: https://www.theregister.com/
Some of the commentards have bronze, silver or gold badges. Not based on post count.

[* Might be official for a limited definition of official]

Please, people, report likely spam or ChatGPT posts instead of responding, which only serves to bump the questionable post and creates more to clean up. I promise you, the poster will experience no crisis of remorse on reading your response.

Two subsequent posts as well as the AI-generated one have been deleted.
