Mark Zuckerberg Announces Book Challenge

Mark Zuckerberg is taking a page out of Oprah Winfrey’s playbook with his latest venture. The Facebook founder and CEO created the page “A Year of Books” for his challenge to read a book every other week in 2015. “I’m looking forward to shifting more of my media diet toward reading books,” he wrote. But don’t expect light reading. Zuckerberg lists Virgil’s The Aeneid as his favorite book and has selected The End of Power: From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being in Charge Isn't What It Used to Be, by Moises Naim as his first book to read. The new challenge is likely to make Amazon happy as The End of Power was temporarily out of stock as of early Monday.
