The Book Photo Challenge

I’ve discovered a number of fun book challenges during my time as a book blog on Tumblr. One of the most popular of these is the Book Photo Challenge hosted by Books and Cupcakes. Each month a list is revealed with a theme for each day; participants of the challenge must take a photograph which combines the theme with books.

I must admit, I’m pretty useless at completing the challenge and out of three attempts, I have only completed it once. However, books have a real aesthetic quality to them, and I love taking photos of them. I’m certainly no photographer but some bloggers take the challenge very seriously, and personally I find that it is a fun way of showing off to the world some of the more underrated books in my collection.

Below are my five favourite contributions to the challenge:

April Book Photo Challenge, Day 10, ‘Female Author’

Jodi Picoult, scattered randomly throughout my book collection. Wall art print by Girl In The Rain.
