Reading Around the Globe: Victoria in Canada

🌏🌍🌎

“I haven’t experienced any hurdles or barriers except for long wait times for borrowing books. I’m lucky that I’m in a position to buy books for myself (although I do limit myself). But I would prefer to borrow more than I do. I just wish that the wait times for books I want to read were lower – and that there were more opportunities to access them.

I would love to be able to support book stores more but I just can’t afford to. Like I said earlier, it is harder to get approval for books on Netgalley as well.”

Reading Around the Globe: Silvia in Germany

🌏🌍🌎

“All in all I think that my lifestyle makes it so I don’t have a lot of technical difficulties buying my books when I need to, but that’s the thing…it’s always buying them, and very rarely borrowing them. I talked about my library in a previous answer, but what would make my life a lot better are ebooks or audiobook library loans, which I can’t get here. Hopefully some day.
