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!
