Today is International Literacy Day! Kristin Shaw, Editor of Block Talk, presents an interesting infographic created by H&R Block. “In anticipation of International Literacy Day, we took a look at the important role libraries still play in our communities.” An interesting fact for business professionals: the top five nonfiction books checked out most often in 2013 from the New York Public Library included three business titles – Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, by Sheryl Sandberg and Nell Scovell; Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson; and The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, by Charles Duhigg.
