Bookselfies – STAINED, SCARS, and HUNTED #bookthroughphone and #bookishstar

I joined Instagram about two months ago, and I’ve been enjoying the vibrant book community there. It’s fun to see others’ photos of books, and to share my own–and also, I have to admit, it’s fun to share photos of my little dog Petal as well. (grinning)

I love how easily I can share my photos through Instagram on Twitter and Facebook and Tumblr. It’s also been lovely to connect with some of my readers who were on Instagram, but weren’t finding me through other social media. I love the posts, tweets, private messages, and emails I get from readers; they’re so rewarding. And I love seeing photos of my books out there with readers!

Two of the great bookish photos I saw people recently taking on Instagram were #bookthroughphone and #bookishstar. So of course I had to join in the fun and post some with my own books. I’m sharing a few here with you–and one or two of Petal. (smiling)

bookthroughphone-stained
STAINED as #bookthroughphone. It took me a few tries before I got it to work. I had fun!

bookthroughphone-scars
SCARS as #bookthroughphone. Not perfectly matched up, but pretty close. 🙂 I think it’s kind of cool; kudos to whoever thought this up.

My #bookishstar
Books from top left clockwise: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Hunted by Cheryl Rainfield, Stained by Cheryl Rainfield, Scars by Cheryl Rainfield, Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, Crank by Ellen Hopkins, When She Hollered by Cynthia Voigt, Are You Alone On Purpose? by Nancy Werlin, Please Excuse Vera Dietz by A S King, Breathing Underwater by Alex Flinn.

And here’s a few of Petal. She is such a sweet, happy girl. 🙂

petal-rolling-around
Petal loves to roll around–on the grass, the hall carpet, the couches. 🙂

petal-about-to-catch-ball
Petal LOVES catching her ball. 🙂

petal-a-blur-as-she-catches-ball
And here’s Petal, all a blur as she catches her ball–even with her hair (and ears) in her eyes. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed these photos. What do you take photos of the most? What or who do you have the most fun taking photos of?

  1. I’ve been toying with the idea of joining Instagram. You may have convinced me to do it. Love Petal’s stop-action photo!

  2. I’m glad, Lee! (smiling at you) I like Instagram a lot. It took some getting used to, though. 🙂 But now I love ti.
