#amreading

Instagram and Twitter are great for posting small snippets of your day. Whether it is a thought about the world, about someone’s behaviour, or just an expression of something fun you did that day, these social media sites provide a lot of insight into people’s lives.

During the summer, we’ve had fun Instagram Challenges, like a post a day based on something bookish. You can see our last one right here. While a 30-day challenge is a lot of commitment, maybe you’d like to participate in a world-wide Instagram challenge that you can do any day, as often or as little as you prefer. It is called #amreading.

#amreadingKnow what other people are reading can be so fascinating! Working at a library brings this into focus probably more than just your average person asking around to their friends and family, but reading is such a source of pleasure, it’s fun to be able to share. And if the book is especially wonderful, it’s even better!

How can you participate? Just post a photo of the book you’re reading with the hashtag #amreading on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, and use the hashtag to search for others doing the same. You might find a lot of like-minded readers, and open up a great book discussion about your current read. Or you might simply come across a book that everyone seems to be talking about right then, and find a new author to add to your to-be-read pile.

So, start posting today. We want to know what you’re reading!
