I actually never knew this about libraries. We have a chance to change how they get books.

Libraries have limited resources and staffing to cull through anything but what the major publishers bring to them (let's face it, it saves them time). But self-publishing and indie authors are starting to yield some significant hits, and helping libraries surface those is a huge service.

I'm a big fan of this Kickstarter, which creates a program to do just that with the flagship Santa Clara County Library system and hopefully every library in the U.S. after that.

A man who uses a wheelchair fell onto the tracks in a New York City subway station on Wednesday afternoon. A CBS New York writer was at the scene of the incident and says that people rushed to save the man after they heard him "whimpering."

It's unclear why the man fell onto the tracks.

A brave rescuer risked his life by jumping on the tracks to get the man to safety knowing that the train would come barreling in at any second. The footage is even more dramatic because you can hear the station's PA system announce that the train is on its way.
