When Facebook CEO and cofounder Mark Zuckerberg was seeking his personal challenge for 2015, he turned to his social media community for suggestions.

Cynthia Greco ’86, of Hanover, an audience development manager for York Newspaper Company, wrote the following response: “Read a new book every month. BUT, someone else gets to choose the book.”

Zuckerberg quickly commented that he liked the idea. Three days later, he announced that his challenge would be to read a new book every other week. He thanked the 50,000 people who shared ideas and said that Cindi’s suggestion received 1,900 likes.

“Anytime something I say or do provokes reading, all is right with the world,” Cindi said.
