UK PLR statements were released on 17 January 2018 and here’s a few of the responses from authors on Twitter:
Stephen Booth @stephenbooth Jan 18
Many thanks yet again to all the UK library users who read my books during 2016-2017 (a whopping total of 158,461 loans), and of course to @PLR_UK for doing such a great job supporting authors. :)
Francesca Simon @simon_francesca Jan 18
Many thanks to @PLR_UK and all library users and readers who help writers earn a living by borrowing our books.
Jan Jones @janjonesauthor Jan 18
So grateful to the @PLR_UK team. Grateful also to all those authors who fought and fought for 30 years to get us this right…
Guy Bass @GuyBassBooks · Jan 19The @PLR_UK statement is lovely in many ways but it's especially heartwarming that books that have faded into obscurity at retail are still being read and (hopefully!) enjoyed. For FREE. All hail #libraries !
