BTB Instagram Challenge Prompts

Are you on instagram? Want to join the Beat the Backlist #bookstagram challenge? Here are the prompts for the 2018 year!

Since this challenge is all about backlist books (titles published before 2018), the goal of this bookstagram challenge is to feature those books! That doesn’t mean you can’t feature 2018 releases, though. This is just for fun!

Prompts are for every Thursday (we wanted to give everyone a chance to take advantage of #ThrowbackThursday too 😉 ) and you don’t have to be signed up for the BTB challenge to participate!

Tag your photos with #BeatTheBacklist!
