Random House sparks Twitter trend with #emojireads

Last Friday, Random House created a lot of buzz at Twitterverse with the hashtag #emojireads. Anyone can join in the fun. You just need to know (1) book titles and (2) the right emojis that are synonymous with the book(s). I think it’s a brilliant way for Random House to engage with people via social media.

Contributors were clever and creative with their tweets. Most tweets are direct to the point while some reveal the book’s plot.

Here are 5 #emojireads that I like the most:

  • ‘Lord of the Flies’ by William Golding

  • ‘Les Miserables’ by Victor Hugo

  • ‘Thinking, Fast and Slow’ by Daniel Kahneman

  • ‘Lord of the Rings’ by J.R.R. Tolkien

  • ‘Pride & Prejudice’ by Jane Austen

I finished reading ‘Neverwhere’ by Neil Gaiman last weekend. So I decided to contribute to the list of #emojireads:
