The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

Okay yes but HERE’S THE DEAL.
You absolutely should not pay $120 for an Amazon subscription service. Just. Don’t do it.
But you know what is a SUPER GOOD IDEA??
Requesting (wait for it) the books you want to read! (wait there’s more) FROM YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY.
This is useful to authors, this is useful to other readers, and it is useful to libraries. Libraries exist to be used. They get shut down at least in part because no one uses them. 
If you want to read a book that’s SO INDIE you can’t get it through the library it would not kill you to shell out $2.99 for it tbh. But that’s almost never going to be the case.
REQUEST THE BOOK. AUTHORS LOVE THAT TRUST ME.
