#Bookface and #Corpuslibris: Be One With Book Cover

Sometimes the first thing I see when signing into one of my social media accounts is human garbage being, well, human garbage. Never a great way to start the day, but I refuse to let the smell of toxic garbage ruin my mood which is why I now automatically look up a fun hashtag to remind me there are a lot of people who are fun(ny), creative, and for the bonus-win book lovers.

Recently I’ve been enjoying #corpuslibris and #bookface : the tags used for people morphing themselves into one with a book cover. Some are really creative and some are people clearly born with the purpose of taking a picture with a specific book cover. And some aren’t even human…
