Could yours be one of them?
Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, announced his new year’s resolution on January 2nd. “My challenge for 2015 is to read a new book every other week — with an emphasis on learning about different cultures, beliefs, histories
Zuckerberg is known for his ambitious New Year’s resolutions. Last year he learned to speak Mandarin. In past years he became a vegetarian (except for animals he killed himself), attempted to meet a new person every day (who was not a Facebook employee), wrote a thank you note every day, and wore a tie every day (well, this one isn’t as extraordinary).
He is also challenging all Facebook users who like his A Year of Book’s page to read the same books in the same time period. The page invites everyone to “read a new book every two weeks and discuss it here…. Suggestions for new books to read are always welcome.”
As of this writing, A Year of Books has received over 225,000 likes and Amazon announced that the first title to be read, The End of Power by Moisés Naím has already sold out. Lucky for us, print-on-demand books never sell out!
We are encouraging all Lulu.com non-fiction authors who specialize in cultural writing, belief systems, history, or technology, to tell Mr. Zuckerberg about your book.
It’s easy to do
- Visit the Facebook page, A Year of Books and click the Like button to join the group.
- Pitch your book on the page. Tell Mr. Zuckerberg how your book will help him learn about different cultures, beliefs, histories and technologies. Think of this as your 30-second elevator speech and don’t forget to include a link to your book to make it easy to find.
- Tell your fans, friends and family that you’ve nominated your book to be read so they can like your post.
- And, finally be sure to let us know you submitted your book for consideration. Simply tag us in your pitch by including Lulu.com in the post or using the hashtag #Lulu.
We wish you the best of luck and hope to see your book on Mr. Zuckerberg’s 2015 reading list.
