If you love reading, you need to be on Instagram. I stumbled across the “bookstagram” community in January, and it really was like a whole new world opened. After I found the right hashtags, I not only started using them to increase my engagement on Instagram, but I found a wonderful community of people who love nothing more than talking about the books they are reading.
One thing I’ve noticed on Instagram is that fiction books seem to get all the love. I’ve participated in quite a few book-related challenges on Instagram, and I really enjoy them. But I’ve never seen an Instagram Challenge about nonfiction books — so I decided to host one myself!
The purpose of this Instagram Challenge is to help you learn more about nonfiction books you might want to read. This is a great opportunity to share your own favorites and add some new books to your TBR pile.
This Instagram Challenge will start on May 1, 2017, and run the entire month. The challenge covers everything from favorite nonfiction genre to your preferred reading snacks and a special nod to moms on Mother’s Day. We’ll be using #nonfictionmay as the main hashtag.
If you’re new to Instagram, here are a few other hashtags you’ll want to use when you post in response to the challenge prompts (this paragraph contains the challenge hashtag too, so you can copy and paste this whole paragraph into your Instagram post):
#nonfictionmay #book #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookporn #bookworm #bookaddict #bookaholic #totalbooknerd #booksofinstagram #booknerdigans #bookphotography #becauseofreading #igreads #ilovebooks #nonfiction #nonfictionbooks #nonfictionauthor #nonfictionwriting
I hope you’ll join me and share this Instagram Challenge with your fellow book nerds. You can follow me on Instagram at @susan.m.steele. I look forward to seeing you on Instagram!
