President Announcing Free E-Books For Low-Income Kids

Free e-books for low-income kids is cool and all but how many of those kids have the devices they need to actually read the books?

The plan includes $250 million in e-book commitments from publishers, including from the five major publishing houses: Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck GmbH's Macmillan, CBS Corp's Simon & Schuster Inc, Penguin Random House, Lagardere SCA's Hachette Book Group Inc, and News Corp's HarperCollins Publishers LLC.
