By showing off both books in the These Violent Delights duology, tothineshelfbetrue proves that sometimes the ideal pairing for an e-reader is a physical book!

Here you’ll see how thebookreviewcrew cleverly uses a stack of books to both hold up a phone and provide a nice contrast to The Last House on Needless Street’s green audiobook cover. And you know we love seeing the NetGalley Shelf app in action!

Reading_under_covers’ picture of The Ex Hex is enchanting! We love that the sweatshirt doubles the witchy vibes and autumn feel of this shot.

There’s power in simplicity, as _nighttimereads shows us by using a simple white backdrop to really highlight Beautiful Country.

Allys.book.corner knows that headphones are your e-reader’s best friend when taking a picture for an audiobook review.

We love the way bookrecsbymel uses this beachy background and cloudy sky to make the colors on the cover of Lulu and Milagro’s Search for Clarity really pop!

Bookish_wanderer captured the atmosphere of The Lighthouse Witches and infused it into this stunning photo! Plus the candle, coffee mug, and book pages make for excellent props. 

There’s nothing better than scrolling through a Bookstagram feed to spy the face of a happy reader—you just know whatever book they’re talking about is going to be good. Here ellieturnsthepage shows off a perfect way to pose with an e-reader and a great read.

With cold days around the corner, set the scene with your Bookstagram photo. Wanderlustforbooks’ picture is giving us the best cozy vibes and makes us want to curl up with our latest NetGalley approval!

Drawing inspiration from the book you’re reading is always a good idea. We love how booksnparchment brought the woods from the cover of Under the Whispering Door to life with this shot!
