Partners in Literacy

Just read a great blog post,"Publishers as Partners in Literacy", about First Book Marketplace, a nonprofit that sells new books, at very reduced prices, to schools and reading programs serving low income kids. Many readers were outraged because they felt the program was competing with libraries. I don't agree, but read the article and tell me what you think. This is my favorite quote from the blog: "There is nothing about reducing the price of books that competes with promoting the use of libraries; these efforts are not mutually exclusive; they are complementary."
