Zuckerberg Starts Facebook Book Group, Wants You to Join
Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, has a New Year’s resolution to read more books, and he wants you to join him. Zuckerberg has vowed to read a new book every fortnight for the entirety of 2015, and has started a group on Facebook for others to take on the challenge, too.
In the announcement post, Zuckerberg wrote:
I’m excited for my reading challenge. I’ve found reading books very intellectually fulfilling. Books allow you to fully explore a topic and immerse yourself in a deeper way than most media today. I’m looking forward to shifting more of my media diet towards reading books.
30 million invites have been sent to Zuckerberg’s followers, and 80,000 people have already signed up. Any Facebook user can join the group, called A Year in Books.
