I'm back with another bit of discussion, and one that is very important to Aussie readers, authors and publishers. This has been news for over a month now, so you may already be in the know, but it's important to continue talking about it and spreading the word.
The Australian Government is going to ruin the Australian Book Industry.
If you've been paying attention on Twitter & Booktube, you may be aware of the drama that has been happening over the past few days.
In a recent video from Steve Donoghue, he stated that he believed some of the bigger Booktubers weren't "real readers." This was then followed by some comments that may or may not have been meant to be sexist, regarding those who make high-quality videos and that they probably didn't get lost in the books they read. This is only a loose explanation, and if you want to know more, I will link to some blog posts and videos at the end of this post.
I'm not here to call out Steve on his comments, because enough of that has been done already. I'm here to reinforce what we all know - we are all readers.
