Join me for my April 2018 book photo challenge!

Welcome to my April photo challenge! This year, all my monthly challenges will be going under the hashtag #Ampersand2018, though I’ll be creating prompts for each month as usual.

I’ve given ideas for each prompt below, but you can interpret them however you choose! Don’t forget to check out my tips for conquering a book photo challenge!

  1. Egg: IT’S EASTER. GET YOUR CHOCOLATE ON. Or dragon eggs. Or any kind of eggs. Or egg someone on. Just make it egg-cellent.
  2. Tale: Celebrate Hans Christian Andersen’s birthday with your favourite fairytale or fairytale retelling.
  3. Delicate: Books you’ve read so often they’re falling apart
  4. Poetry: It’s National Poetry Month in the US, and it’s Maya Angelou’s birthday. You can create some #bookspinepoetry, or feature your favourite poetry book.
