Facebook founder and billionaire (is that redundant?) Mark Zuckerberg has always made serious New Year’s resolutions. Last year, he said he would write one handwritten thank you note a day–did you get yours? Neither did we. But he’s got a lot of friends, as you know, so understandable. And they aren’t just friends in social media either. We know that because the year before last Zuckerberg’s New Year’s resolution was to meet at least one new person each day. You’d think that’d be easy, but he gets bogged down at work. Anyway, there’s 365 more people to write thank you notes to.
Zuckerberg’s admirable 2015 New Year’s resolution is to read a new book every two weeks. He wants it to be a movement, a community. He’s calling it A Year of Books and, you guessed it, there’s a Facebook page for it. He’s got 65,000 Likes so far. They’re all going to discuss the books as they go. And you thought the classes at UCLA were big! The first book is The End of Power by Moisés Naím. It’s suspected that Zuckerberg chose this book because he finds the title kind of funny.
(Btw, did you know Mark Zuckerberg just taught himself Chinese?)
