#DailyBookPic – A Bookish Photo Project

This last month, I watched with interest as several of my Twitter friends took part in Photo A Day, a game (or “meme,” though I hate that word) led by a blogger in Australia. The blog, Fat Mum Slim, is helmed by woman named Chantelle, and every month she posts a challenge list full of interesting ideas for photos. Those who are playing along will then share their photos via Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, or any other social medium of their choosing, tagging the post with the appropriate hashtag for that month. For July, that would be #photoadayjuly.

It looks like a lot of fun, especially when one has children or pets to put in their photos. As I have neither, I thought I would turn to my book collection for inspiration. What I am going to do for the month of July is a Daily Book Pic (or #dailybookpic). I’ll be sharing my pics on Twitter and Pinterest, and anywhere else that I think of on that given day. I invite you to join along. I know July is already underway, so jump in whenever you like.

Remember, be creative. The prompts below are just a starting place. Feel free to go in whatever direction you choose. I’m also going to ask for suggestions for the last few photo prompts. Please leave your thoughts in the comments.

Here’s the list of prompts, along with my first two photos:
