Utah Book Week Instagram Challenge

Every year we've had fun posting Utah books related pictures to Instagram. This coming week's celebration will be no different. Here's the image complete with prompts that you can share to Instagram and then post each day:

These prompts are meant to be open-ended, so you can use them however you'd like. For example, "people" could be authors, bloggers, or characters. "Last" could be the last Utah book you read, the last book in a series, or the last book you'd want with you on a deserted island. Go forth and be creative! We can't wait to see what you come up with!
