Read Fold Luck: A March Photo Challenge

Wednesday, February 22, 2017




Oh my, how did February zoom by?  It's almost March!

And that means, it's time for a new photo challenge on Instagram. And this one is especially for all of you bookstagramers out there. Did you follow along last month?  If not, feel free to start now!

Each day there is a different prompt, so you can join in the fun. Some times, like last month,  we have paper folding prompts. The links can be found below, feel free to do them, or interrupt them in way you want!

But, we also decided to change things up a bit this month.

First of all, we have two new co-hosts!! Yay!

And, because there are a ton of great monthly challenges out there, we wanted to make it easier to mesh this with others, so most days the prompt is just a Question of the Day (QOTD).  Just answer the question!  Feel free to feature your answers through books, but this should also help you all to fit this super fun challenge into your month. 

I hope you will join in... just follow me on Instagram and check it out! And please follow my lovely co-hosts - they are super sweet, you will love them, I promise!
