  • Sheryl Sandberg: “I probably shouldn’t admit this since I work in the tech industry, but I still prefer reading paper books.” 
  • Perhaps this explains why January bookstore sales were up 5.5 percent ($2.1 billion)!
  • KFC is recovering from a Chinese chicken scandal with a Twitter poetry contest. “KFC kicked off a poetry contest on social media. The company asked fans to pen poems that include the phrase, ‘The chickens are innocent,’ laying the blame on illicit drug use at the farms. Best poem wins an iPad mini.” Yes, you just read that correctly. 
  • We can’t get enough of Nina Katchadourian and her “Sorted Books” project.
