We’re serious when we talk about loving to get to know our fellow bookstagrammers. Take a book out on the town and show us a little bit of your hometown.
10. Better Than Columbus
Many cities have already done away with the garbage holiday that is Columbus Day. We’d like to jump on board: What author or book character should have their own national holiday?

16. Autumn Prints
Colder weather calls for tartan scarves and plaid flannels. Show off your book with some cozy fabric.

It can be scary to step outside of your comfort zone but try something new. Whether it’s a genre you don’t normally read, or a new way to set up your photos.
18. Required Reading
Maybe this is a book you had to read for school, or maybe it’s the book you push on everyone you know!

21. Intense Read
Ever read a book that makes you literally jump, or glance around the room in concern? We’re dying to see that book.

Maybe you’re channeling Snape today, or the witches from Macbeth? Or maybe you’re brewing up some wicked sangria today.

Michael Crichton is celebrating another year of awesome today, show off his books! Not a Crichton fan? What scifi read do you recommend?

We’re looking for ghosts, monsters, spine-tingling reads today.
