Read Gush March 2019 Bookstagram Photo Challenge

How many of you joined us for the Bookstagram 101 challenge in January?

What did you think?

After some chatting with my cohosts, we decided to make March a Bookstagram 201... which means we put in a ton of prompts that are a challenge even for us to stage.  So we understand this could be harder, just give it a try.  If you aren't sure how to get a prompt staged, ask one of us on Insta, or just make it up.  The fun of Instagram is you get to be you inside the community.

This is one of those times the effort totally counts 100%.

We will be using the hashtag #readgushMar19 so set up to follow it now, and you won't miss out on the community activity. 

Before the month starts...

Share the challenge image in your stories, with the hashtag, maybe even tag all the co-hosts so we can shower some love on you. 

Or even, follow the co-hosts!
