Update to the update: I just got in! Woo hoo!!
Update: March 23 – I’m told that Amazon reinstated Lendle’s API access and Lendleapp did tweet that they were back up, but unfortunately, I’m still getting icky 502 bad gateway errors.
I do wish we (libraries) had concrete evidence to share with booksellers and publishers that showed how beneficial lending is to their business. I’m a hybrid reader – I buy some of my smut, I borrow some of my smut and I lend some of my smut. I buy more than I borrow or lend. As one of those Romance readers who drive the $1.6 billion in sales every year…I’m good for business.
