The Zuckerberg Book Club 2015

If Oprah can do it why not Mark Zuckerberg? The CEO of Facebook announced that his challenge for 2015 was to read more books. Aside from the fact that Jeff Bezos ( CEO of Amazon) probably received the best news to reach him for the New Year (the title sold out within days of the announcement) causing the publisher to frantically call the printer and order lots and lots of copies.

“We had no prior notice and learned about it at the same time as everybody else did. Orders are pouring in,” said David Steinberger, CEO of Perseus and another happy company owner.

The announcement was made on Zuckerberg’s Facebook page on Jan 2 almost at midnight. He’s got more than 30 million people following him so he’ll have a lot of backlash if he doesn’t post a new title and/or forget to post his thoughts every other week. The actual discussion/reviews/rants of the book will be on another FB page titled ‘A Year of Books.’

You may be wondering how can you possibly compete with 30 million followers as well as all the other bookworms that exist in this world in order to get your hands on this month’s title. Your best bet is to download the ebook. If you like used books, there are only (as of this second) about 50 copies on Amazon’s website. Both paperback and Kindle editions go for $9.99 and since Amazon doesn’t have its drone situation figured out yet, an automatic download sounds like the safest bet if you want to keep up with Zuckerberg. I’ve already checked my local library and the holds are about 2o people ahead of me which isn’t that bad but not ideal.

Another option would be to sign up with Audible. They are offering a 30-day subscription for free.

Here at Collective Lifestyle, we have decided to take on Zuckerberg’s challenge and read along. We will post our review and comments in the next week. PREPARE YOURSELF!

The End of Power by Moises Naim

 

Unfortunately Zuckerberg has decided to keep the world in suspense since he has not provided any sort of list for any of the future books.
