I regularly hear readers apologising for borrowing books from the library instead of buying a copy. Here are three reasons why you should never feel bad for using a library:
1. UK libraries are closing at the rate of one every 46 days, and other countries are seeing similar cuts. It's vital we show our support, and by using your library card you are doing a Good Thing.
2. Authors write to be read. The bestseller charts (and the film deals, and the book launches...) are wonderful, but most of us write books because we have stories to share. We're delighted you're reading our books - no matter how you came by them.
3. Did you know authors in the UK receive 8.52 pence for each library loan? It's paid out once a year (thank you @PLR_UK!) and honestly the nicest thing about it is realising how many readers have been using libraries.
