STERN: Challenge the Corporation

March 2, 2015 • 0

January 12, 2015 • 0
It seems to me that if the prize did not want to give a huge advantage to kids with money, it would not give any weight to the rarity or quality of the books, it would not privilege hardbacks over paperbacks and it would not mandate that collections be extracurricular.
