introduced a new rehabilitation initiative which might free up prison

The organizers believe that by encouraging reading, the prisoners are more likely to make something out of themselves once they're sent back to out.
For every book they read, the get to strike off at least four days from their sentence. Inmates will only be allowed to read up to 12 books a year.
