BREAKING NEWS: Man Discovers Books

“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.”

– Mark Zuckerberg

Next up: print newspapers and magazines. They’re like web sites, only you can’t click on things!

  1. This is my favorite headline for this story. While I’m thrilled that Zuck is going to read more — and encourage others to do so — a 25-book-a-year challenge isn’t exactly tough to accomplish. Last year, I read twice as many.

  2. Not only that, but he’s talking as if reading books is some sort of new thing, a niche thing. As if books haven’t always been the default for all knowledge/intellectually fulfilling/a source for deeper immersion. I think it’s a generational thing. Younger people go to the web and social media and blog posts first and then longform – really longform, like books – are a “new” thing to “discover.”
