> 100M books? Who knew Dolly Parton was so well read?

This has been a project of hers for a very long time.

Not very useful comment, just wanted to write this... anything that can be done for the betterment of children's lives, anywhere on this planet, it a winning point for humanity. I didn't even know that Dolly Parton had started something like that, I never appreciated her music (byt hey, I bet not many people appreciate the early Sepultura albums either), but she now has my utmost respect.

She also started Dollywood as a way to create jobs in a historically impoverished part of the country. You don't bad mouth Dolly in East Tennessee, she's like our patron saint.
