Bookstagram

I have started getting into the “bookstagram” trend lately, which is basically taking artistic photos of books and posting them on Instagram and other social media. It’s really fun and allows me to be a little creative with the usually beautiful covers being put out recently! I’ve always loved photography (whether I’ve been halfway decent at it is a real question), so this is just another really neat outlet for my love of books!

Follow along with me this month as I participate in #redwhiteandbookedjuly! In case you’re new to these challenges, here’s a rundown: basically one or more users create a challenge, usually a month-long one, where they give you a “theme” for every day. This is the challenge I’m doing:

Books that take place where you live — Rainbow Rowell not only lives here, but has found a way to weave Omaha into all of her books. Eleanor & Park actually takes place here, which is awesome!

    Thanks for sharing these! I’d like to do a “bookstagram” but I just don’t have that artistic eye to see what works / what lighting works / etc. I enjoyed your post though! x

      It definitely is a skill that some people unfortunately don’t have! But that’s okay — you have other outlets for your bookish things! 🙂
