You guys. I have been bursting to tell you about this brand new service for months now! I was lucky enough to be chosen as a beta tester, and fell in love immediately, but I was sworn to secrecy. It was insanely hard to not immediately blog, tweet, instagram, Facebook and yell out the front door about BooksTo.Me!
In a nutshell: Each month, your Instagram feed is pulled, laid out in book, printed, and shipped to your house. Bam! Phone photos in a beautiful book for you to enjoy for years to come, and it is effortless!
You don’t have to remember to log into a website, upload your images, lay them out into a book, etc. It’s all done automatically for you! For a forgetful, scatterbrained woman like me, this is perfection!
What if I take a picture I don’t care to remember for all eternity, and therefore don’t want it in my book? Not a problem! Just add a simple little hashtag either to the photo description, or in the comments, and it won’t be added to your book. Whew! I really only need so many printed pictures of the food I’m eating 😉
Do you know what my favorite part of this whole thing has been? My kids are excited about these books too! Now when I pull out my phone to snap a picture, they don’t groan, go running, or throw their hands up in front of their faces. Instead, they say “is this going to be in the next book?!”.
When a new BooksTo.Me book arrives in the mailbox, I have to beat my children off with the box so that I can flip through it first. Ok, I don’t really beat them off with a box, but I have been known to grab it, run to my room (undetected, of course), and open it there. They love these books as much as I do! In fact, I keep the books out where they can easily reach them, and almost daily I find at least one of them flipping through the books and excitedly saying “remember this?” or “Look at this!”.
Clearly I am in love with BooksTo.Me, and I think you will be too!
