I don't like to talk about controversial subjects on my blog, but I simply cannot let this one slide... In the last few months I've noticed a disgusting trend beginning to crop up: illegal book downloading. As a writer and an avid reader, I am outraged that people are doing this. I mean, seriously? IT IS ILLEGAL. Would you walk into a bookstore and take 10 books and walk out without paying? No, of course you wouldn't, because it is ILLEGAL! Unless it is a website like Amazon, downloading books for free is illegal. Now, there are some classics that are free to get online because the copyright has run out, but new books are copyrighted. You cannot download books for free from modern authors-- it is illegal.
Alright, I think I've ranted enough about that =)
