What is Hooked to Books all about?
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 had their lives changed by the invention of this hashtag.
The best bookstagrammers post photos of their bookshelves, books near coffee mugs, candles, photos of them reading in bed and more. Bookstagram is a fascinating and welcoming space for all bibliophiles.
What is a bibliophile?
According to Google, 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?

Where is Hooked to Books heading in the future?
We’ve got a serious vision for growth, but what exactly will Hooked to Books look like in the future?
But that’s not all! We’re also committed to bringing value even beyond our community. We offer Scholarships for college students, and we’re aiming to implement more Giving Back programs in the future.
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.
