It's not everyday that the CEO of a major American company say he doesn't use his company's most important product, at least in terms of how much money that product rakes in. Which is probably why it's worth two minutes of your time to listen to Barnes & Noble CEO William J. Lynch, Jr. tell Bloomberg News' Nicole Lapin precisely that in an interview on Friday.

"I don't really read physical books anymore," Lynch told Lapin while apparently standing in a Barnes & Noble lined with paper books. "I like to read digitally. My wife is reading a lot of physical books."
