A worldwide book club – are you ready for that? January 6, 2015

So, I’m online, just minding my own business…when I run across this headline:

“Mark Zuckerberg’s 2015 Resolution: Start a Book Club

Whoa.

Only this is no ordinary book club, my friends. This is serious. He vows to read a book every two weeks and has a Facebook page devoted to the club that invites discussion. Now, I am no math major, but a book every two weeks…52 weeks in a year…that’s like 2 a month…times 12 months…24 books. And isn’t he kind of busy with other things? I already have to fight to find the time to read 1 book in a month! Call me impressed!!

I really hope he makes it. What a powerful example to the younger generations about the importance of reading. If you are interested, the first book is called The End of Power by Moisés Naím. The library has just ordered 2 copies so we hope to have them available very soon!

And if you are into book clubs in general, be sure to check out RRPL’s ongoing book clubs:

  • Adult Rocky River Readers Book Discussion – next meeting is Thursday, January 15. Book: The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
  • Men’s Book Discussion – next meeting is Tuesday, January 20. Book: A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
  • Get “Reel” Film and Book Discussion – Wednesday, February 25. Book: Jane Eyre
