The Instagram Account You Need To Follow

Don't judge a book by its cover, but feel free to fall in love with these gorgeous reads.

In between reading books and talking about books, Team Read It Forward has found another way to showcase the literature we love: Instagram!

We think the visual platform is the perfect way to share what we’re reading and celebrate the beauty of books and their alluring and colorful covers at the same time.

Introducing @bookbento, a browse-able bookstore of recommended reads and arresting book jackets paired alongside a still life of delightful objects. A veritable feast for the eyes!

Check out a few of our favorite @bookbento images below and click the snapshot to buy the book. Then follow us on Instagram, and create your own book bento with a beloved book. Be sure to tag it using the hashtag #bookbento so we can see your vivid and vibrant shots!

Get recommendations for the greatest books around straight to your inbox every week.

Happy reading…and scrolling!
