#RBRThrowbackReads – Instagram, Tumblr & Blog Meme

Hello and welcome to a new bookish meme I started!

I really love participating in #TBT or #ThrowbackThursdays on Instagram and came up with a way us reader folks could make it our own.

How to Participate

1. Every Thursday, take a photo of a book that was published prior to 2013 that fits the throwback theme listed below. You can blog it, Instagram it, Tumblr it or Tweet it.

2. Use the Hashtag #RBRThrowbackReads.

3. Tag me @LisaMParkin so I can comment, like, and repost it (with credit, of course)

BONUS: If you share the photo on your blog, you can include these prompts:

  • This book was published:______
  • More about (insert weekly theme name): ____
  • I chose this book because: ______


For March:
