This was Amazing post by Marie! I can relate to all the points discussed in her post. My views rant on the topic is like this (which I comment back on her post as well)-

I’m from India. In my hometown, we have two library, one is public library that has more non-English novels than English one (that is also not latest ones) another is British Library which is far from my house and it’s not public library so NO to non-members! The city I live in with my husband doesn’t have libraries!
We have shops but again you won’t find all the latest books! (I still can’t see books by Marie Lu, Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir and many more in Crossword)
I have same issues with NetGalley, “wish for it”. It’s impractical for publishers or author sending copies overseas.
Just yesterday I won a copy in giveaways which was second in series. So I checked all other books by that author on Amazon and guess what they were all kindle formats. No paperbacks available for Indian website, it was available only for US site!
All this make me think ‘I wish I could change country’.

  1. I can’t even imagine being so limited. My bookworm heart goes out to you. Still? You continue to post fantastic content regularly which says a lot about your talents as a blogger.

    1. Thank you, Shannon! Netgalley, blog tours and other certain ways to get at least e-ARCs are blessings. But many times I have to wait so long to get papebacks on Amazon and even more when I want them at affordable price. But all in all I’m just happy with alternatives available. 😌
