Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has vowed that he will read a new book every two weeks in 2015.
“I’m excited for my reading challenge,” said the 30-year-old billionaire in a Facebook post. “Books allow you to fully explore a topic and immerse yourself in a deeper way than most media today.”
Zuckerberg plans to read 26 books in 2015, well exceeding the consumption of the average American, who read one book a month in 2013, according to the Pew Research Center.
Zuckerberg said his new year’s resolution will allow him to learn about different cultures, beliefs and histories.
The Facebook founder is known for his quirky New Year resolutions. In 2014 he vowed that he would learn to speak Mandarin, the previous year he resolved to meet one new person each day who didn’t work at Facebook and in 2012, his resolutions included writing a thank you note daily to someone who made the world better.
In 2011, Zuckerberg said he would be a vegetarian. In 2010, he vowed to wear a tie every day.
