What the hell?

… West Virginia Inmates Will Be Charged by the Minute to Read E-Books on Tablets – (Hat tip, Virginia Kerr.)

Under a 2019 contract between the West Virginia Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation (WVDCR) and Global Tel Link (GTL), the company that is providing electronic multimedia tablets to 10 West Virginia prisons, inmates will be charged 3 cents a minute to read books, even though the books all come from Project Gutenberg, a free online library of more than 60,000 texts in the public domain.
