The Books for All initiative

The US government is launching a new program called Books for All. Its purpose is to make free ebooks and ebook readers available to kids from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. It’s a great idea and I hope it really takes off.

My parent publisher, Hachette, has included The Innocent Mage in the first round of books being made available. This makes me so pleased, I can’t tell you! If you’re on Twitter (I’m not, I have enough trouble keeping up with a blog!) it would be great if you could pass along the news.

  1. That’s a great initiative, and I really hope it takes off. I loved reading when I was a child and it’s something that should be nurtured in children now, too. I work at a university library and we’re trying an initiative for Fresher’s Week this year to get students into the library, fingers crossed it’ll work!
