Barnes & Noble's CEO Puts His Foot in His Mouth
I've been thinking about this interview of Barnes & Noble CEO William Lynch ever since I saw it back in late November. I stumbled across it again this evening and decided to post it here in hopes of flushing the utter stupidity of what Lynch said from my mind. It blows me away to hear the CEO of the largest chain of brick and mortar bookstores still in existence in this country say that he, personally, no longer reads physical books.
"I don't really read physical books that much anymore. I like to read digitally." - William Lynch, Barnes & Noble CEO
Keep smiling, Bill. Amazon might have work for you after you finish running Barnes & Noble into the ground.
