The 50 Book Challenge

Steve Jobs said: “The fact is that people don’t read anymore…”

Shelfari’s 50 Book Challenge said: “Fie! Steve Jobs,” (We say Fie because we read a lot and we know a lot of words.) “Fie! Steve Jobs! We read 16,892 books in 2008.”

To elaborate: When asked about the new Amazon Kindle product, Steve Jobs CEO of Apple computer had this to say:

“It doesn’t matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people don’t read anymore,” he said. “Forty percent of the people in the U.S. read one book or less last year. The whole conception is flawed at the top because people don’t read anymore.”

Welcome to the the 50 Book Challenge, where we fly in the face of Steve Jobs.

Basically, the challenge is to read 50 books in one year. OR! Establish a goal for yourself that is more than or less than fifty books; it’s up to you! Just because we say 50 books doesn’t mean that has to be your goal too.
