We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Frog's trying to make some sort of sense of the miasma of give-a-kid-a-book initiatives being promulgated by central government for the delight of staff in libraries. He's now resorted to putting together a huge wall chart mapping out the timelines of each project and its target audience. It turns out that The Reading Agency alone is responsible for a raft of projects providing books for children in all but two years of primary school.

Which raises the question: wouldn't it be more efficient having one project providing books for all primary school children rather than a dozen projects providing books for most of them?

Especially as each project has its own measurement regime, statistical returns and local administrative overheads.
