No one seems interested in a legal fight The legal basis for the Open Library's lending program may be even shakier now that the Internet Archive has removed limits on the number of books people can borrow.

Catching Tarantulas My first encounter with a tarantula in Animal Crossing: New Horizons nearly had me in tears. There I was minding my own business, making my way to Nook’s Cranny, when I walked behind a tree and suddenly one was chasing me.
