ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama teased a young moderator at an e-book event, saying the moderator, "thinks I have been talking too long," when Obama was wrapping up comments about 'writer's block.' Obama was speaking at the Anacostia Library in Southeast Washington, D.C., where he talked about a plan to give low-income children access to 10,000 e-books. The e-book plan includes $250 million in e-book commitments from publishers, including from the five major publishing houses: Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck GmbH's Macmillan, CBS Corp's Simon & Schuster Inc, Penguin Random House, Lagardere Hachette Book Group Inc, and News Corp's HarperCollins Publishers LLC.
