Of Librarians, Guardians, and Gatekeepers

There are nonsense kerfuffles happening in the bookish world, and I am ON IT over at the other blog. My thoughts on abolishing libraries, Disney firing James Gunn, and panel selections at Worldcon:

Every Day Should Be Tuesday

Here at Every Day Should Be Tuesday I have a little tradition.  Every Monday night I put my daughter to bed, pour myself a drink, think about finally writing my review of Brandon Sanderson’s Oathbringer, and then write something else entirely to post on Tuesday.  I’ve been trying for the last hour to convince a screaming baby that, truly, sleep is the best life choice, so my tolerance for MALARKEY is at critical levels.  Unfortunately, there is a lot of MALARKEY going on in the bookish world at the moment.

Let’s see if we can tie three distinct controversies together thematically.  First, an academic economist argued that libraries should be replaced by Amazon bookstores.  Second, James Gunn was fired for a series of awful, awfully old tweets.  Finally, people are ANGRY about WorldCon.
