What is Hooked to Books all about?
Hooked To Books is here to nurture the love of books and support your book-reading fantasies. Being unique is what you are meant to be and become, and books help you on your way to self-realization. Let’s use our love of books to collectively build brilliant, creative futures for ourselves and our world.
What is Bookstagram? (aka what are bookstagrammers)
Bookstagram (aka #bookstagram) has become a movement. Bookstagram is a hashtag (#) shared by a community of book-loving maniacs (a term of endearment) on the social media platform Instagram. It’s a relatively recent phenomenon (as of December 2018), but has exploded in popularity and practicality. There are countless book blogs, book bloggers, and bibliophiles out there who have literally had their lives changed by the invention of this hashtag. Most bookstagrammers post photos of their bookshelves, books near coffee mugs, candles, photos of them reading in bed, show off their sexy legs with long stockings on… it’s truly fascinating.
What is a bibliophile?
Google says that the definition of a bibliophile is a person who collects or has a great love of books. At Hooked to Books, we just call them friends 🙂
Can you make a living reading books?
The internet has really changed things. People are making salaries that are comparable to (or exceed) the median annual income of the United States doing things never before dreamed of. Sharing your love of books as a bookstagrammer, book blogger, or book rep has become a genuine way to earn a living. And if you’re super ambitious, or possess some marketing talent… you might make a killing.
Where is Hooked to Books headed in the future?
We’ve got a serious vision for growth, but what exactly will Hooked to Books do? We are committed to bringing value to our community, and bringing value beyond our people. In the past, we offered Scholarships for college students, and we’re aiming to implement more Giving Back programs in 2019.
One of our current ideas is to support a non-profit such as roomtoread.org, firstbook.org, littlefreelibrary.org, or treeneutral.com. We’d love to hear from you if you have other ideas or insights into these organizations.
