I love books. Stories in whatever form they come in. But in recent months, I find that I’ve been diversifying where I get them from. I’m not talking about Amazon, which basically has every book. I’m talking about recommendations. I thrive on the work of fellow ENFJs. So recently, my reads have been coming off of social media. First there was What Should I Read Next? And then, Patton Oswalt was the one who told me about the one I’m about to read. And then I discovered all of the Instagrams. Another rabbit hole. From professional overlay artists to photographers and true book lovers, I’m really digging the diversity of books on my feed these days. Light, composition, and the actual books themselves. These guys are my faves,
@bibliofeed was probably the one that started it off. I’m also more than a huge fan of co-founder Holly Hiday’s wardrobe. With a roving collection of curators, @bibliophile asks a fellow reader to take over their account every week. What happens next is an incredibly diverse array of lit. Also pretty photos of books 🙂
The moment my eyes caught this photo, I was in love. @booksss.0k, also known as Adam the art student who really loves books. Each shot is so carefully composed and lit to convey the book’s content. My heart swells. Oh right, there are reviews to boot, and an occasional deep dive into high quality YA lit. All the thumbs up.
@foldedpagedistillery are a collection of lady book lovers, some are even teachers. I love how each photo is seriously styled around the book. Serious thinking here, guys…and a good sense of humour too.
Last but not least is the ice cream with the cherry on top. Literally. Ha ha. I’m so punny. Each book, often quite from the high minded literary section, is matched with an accompanying frozen dessert. “Postmortal swered by a @paleopassion strawberry paleo passion pop?” Yes please. Or perhaps, “A pack of @weightwatchers Snack Size Double Caramel Swirl Ice Cream Cones complements the stylish insanity that @simon_doonan details in his hysterical and irresistible book The Asylum: True Tales of Madness from a Life in Fashion?” Genius. @ice_cream_books is exactly what you think it is.
