Disney Tries to Up the Screen Time Kids Have

Seems some bozos at Disney think it is a good idea to provide digitally remastered copies of their children's collection, online, to replace story time at bedtime. Rather than mom or dad reading, you can watch...$80 a year. gh#!@$!!!!


Toronto Public Library recently purchased 989 copies of Dan Brown’s new novel The Lost Symbol in multiple formats:

● 800 copies of the print version
● 76 copies of the audiobook
● 83 copies of large print
● 15 copies of the eBook
● 15 copies of the eAudiobook
