If you made a New Year’s resolution to read more this year, you have some high-profile company.

Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook recently announced that he plans to read a new book every other week and he wants Facebook users to join in. He wrote in a Facebook post that it’s his “challenge for 2015” and that he received many suggestions for what his new challenge should be.

“I'm excited for my reading challenge,” Zuckerberg wrote. “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.” 

He wrote that on his page, “A Year of Books,” users will be able to participate in a discussion of the book he’s currently reading and that the page will be moderated. The page currently has more than 143,000 likes and there are more than 500 comments discussing Zuckerberg’s first pick, Moisés Naím’s book “The End of Power.” 

“Power” is now ranked at number 73 on Amazon’s bestseller list and is at number three at Barnes & Noble.
