July is Bookstagram Month!

Book blogging isn't just about writing reviews or posts! There's also a growing community of book lovers on Instagram, sharing gorgeous photos, current reads, and their best bookish stuff. If you post bookish photos on Instagram, we'd love to feature you on BBI this July. Slots are still open for both interviews and guest posts. Contact Tasha at for more information.

Let's go back to school in August at Book Bloggers International!  We are looking for bloggers to contribute with your own interpretation of the theme, Back to School.  Maybe you want to share a book that you fell in love with in your high school/college English course.  Or, maybe you want to talk about your favorite schools in books.  Or, maybe you have an entirely different idea.  Email Tif at for more information.

gail profile picGail from Ticket to Anywhere

"Hello! I'm Gail and I have lived in New England all my life where by day I work in the biotech/medical device industry. I'm a total science geek and love to escape from the real world through books which is part of why I started my blog, Ticket to Anywhere, 8 years ago. I love to travel and try and see someplace new every year (this year I'm going to Greece!) and I trying to follow my Nana's footsteps around the globe."

Find out more about Gail this month on Book Bloggers International, and follow her on Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr.

BeccaNot a dumb American: Lesotho edition from Reading the End 

Jenny's Africa Project has her reading across Africa.  This time she visited and learned more about Lesotho, a country that I knew nothing of other than it's geographic location.  She made me want to read the book and learn more about this tiny country.  Plus, there is MEDICINE MURDER.  Yeah
