    zuckerberg-book-clubIt’s sort of  ironic that it is no other than Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and owner of the largest social website on the net facebook who declared 2015 “A Year of Books”.

    Mark is now inviting users to join him in his New Year’s resolution of reading and discussing one book a fortnight. He actually founded his own book club at the start of this year.

    While some are lauding the Facebook founder’s initiative to turn off mobile devices,  to simply sit down and read a good book in silence, others are wondering about using books in such a way.

    According to them, books are not a means for self-improvement (including the element of self-congratulation). Those critics of Mark’s initiative say that reading for those reasons is really missing the point of reading.

    What do you say? Would you want to join Mark Zuckerberg’s book club? Do you think that his initiative to get people reading is a good thing or do you think it’s merely a hipster-sort-of thing because some just think it’s now “cool” to read?
