The wait is over.

Mark Zuckerberg announced on his Facebook page last week that his 2015 “personal challenge” is to read a book every other week in 2015, with an emphasis on learning about different cultures, beliefs, histories and technologies.

And if you feel like joining a virtual book club, here’s your opportunity.

Zuckerberg invited the Facebook community to read along with him by going to a page he created, A Year of Books.

First up on the book list is The End of Power: From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being In Charge Isn’t What It Used to Be by Moisés Naím.

The book was out of stock Sunday on Amazon.com and had a sales ranking of No. 138, according to the Associated Press.

Zuckerberg said he received suggestions on what his resolution should be from 50,000 people on Facebook.
