Reddit takes down Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library website


Usually when you hear that readers of a website such as Reddit have taken down a website it's something bad like a hacking or something that wipes a site out. 

That's not the case here. 

I'm an avid reader of Reddit (the good stuff, not the creepy, wanna poke my eyeballs out stuff) and this morning I noticed that there was a story on the front page of Reddit regarding Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. The heading read:

TIL that Dolly Parton thinks it is so important that every child has books to read that she started a foundation that will mail children a free age-appropriate book every month from birth to their 5th birthday.

That was pretty cool in itself, but then later I came across a story over at Network World regarding the fact that Redditors were so impressed by the story that they actually crashed Dolly's Imagination Library website when too many people tried to visit. 

Gotta love that.

The Imagination Library later tweeted about the incident.

Great to see that news of Dolly's good work is reaching enough people to crash their site.
