What is the Mark Zuckerberg Challenge?

In 2015 Mark decided to start a new Challenge: "to read a new book every other week -- with an emphasis on learning about different cultures, beliefs, histories and technologies."

According to his facebook page "I'm excited for my reading challenge. I've found reading books very intellectually fulfilling. Books allow you to fully explore a topic and immerse yourself in a deeper way than most media today. I'm looking forward to shifting more of my media diet towards reading books"

What kind of books are allowed?

Every book category: Science fiction, Action and Adventure, Self help, Health, Travel, Religion, Spirituality & New Age, Math, Comics, Biographies, etc.

What about book length?

It doesn't really matter if the book is short or long. It's all about the knowledge that you will gather. So you shall pick the ones that better suit your needs.

What about Audible?

Listening books is the new way of "reading". Sometimes it is better to listen instead of reading.

It is up to you to decide what reading/listening style you prefer.
