Selfie challenges have swept away the social media with numerous selfie challenges and that’s when Better Option to Obtain Knowledge (BOOK) a campaign by the students of MA (Journalism & Mass communication) resorted to ‘Bookfie’ or ‘selfie with a book’ challenge on 23, September to promote reading, where one will be flaunting their favorite book in their selfie which will be posted in Facebook with #MeNmyBook.
The selfie challenge was initiated by the BOOK campaign team by posting their own selfie with a book and challenging their friends to post their selfie with their favorite book with hashtag #MeNmyBook. They were further asked to nominate their friends for the same.
It’s really a proud moment for BOOK as it got a massive response for its endeavor with more than 200 selfies being posted. Book Lovers have posted their selfies with their favorite books and further challenged their fellow book lovers. The selfie challenge is still viral on the internet where readers are posting selfies and further nominating their friends.
The selfie challenge got a huge response from students all over from Mangalore in and around Karnataka and Kerala. Not only students, elders where also challenged to post their selfie with their favorite book and the challenge went viral all over the social media in a very short span of time.
Ankita, from the team of BOOK said, “I think selfie with book is something innovative and new to make people aware about importance of books”. She also said that it is an initiative to make people aware of reading ‘books’, as reading is not dying as people are found reading snippets like blog post and tweets but habit of reading books is endangered.
