10 Days To Celebrate Reading (and their #hashtags) for Book-Lovers, Bloggers, & Bookstagrammers


I still don’t show pictures of neatly arranged books next to beautiful bud vases and interesting socks on Instagram, but I’m improving. I understand Instagram is a visual medium, and I see how others are adept at using it, but I’m really just in it to share books (@rebeccarvincent) and see what everyone else is reading. 

Nevertheless, I like following others who post about books and searching through common hashtags is a good way to start. Recently I stumbled upon #NationalReadingDay. Except I stumbled upon it a day late and was unprepared. So I figured maybe I could find a few more national/international days related to book reading and be better able to participate and connect. Maybe one or two of them could help you, too?

January 23: National Reading Day (#NationalReadingDay) and January 27 is Multicultural Children’s Book Day (#ReadYourWorld)

February 16: World Read Aloud Day (#wrad17)

March 2: Read Across America (#ReadAcrossAmerica) – celebrate reading on Dr. Seuss’s birthday – a double-whammy! AND/OR you can celebrate World Book Day (#WorldBookDay)- same idea, celebrate reading for children, British-style

April: The entire month of April is National Poetry Month (#npm17)! 

August 9: National Book Lovers Day (#NationalBookLoversDay)

September 6: National Read a Book Day (#ReadABookDay) and Banned Books Week starts September 24-September 30, 2017 (#BannedBooksWeek).

November 1: National Author Day (#NationalAuthorsDay)

As an added bonus, here are two articles I’ve stumbled upon in my reading that list a slew of great hashtags for bookstagrammers to consider in their posts!

*The 31 Most Popular Hashtags for Book Lovers from amreading.com

*A Book Blogger’s Guide to Instagram from Parchment Girl

So go ahead, snap those pictures and blog those lists of favorite books/children’s books/resources/whatever the day requires. It’s a great year to be a reader! Use a hashtag, connect with other readers, add to your TBR pile, and get back to reading.
