Instagram for Books (New Post @BookRiot)

Through the magic of Instagram, the average person with a cellphone camera can take a normal picture and add depth, grit, and even a sense of made-to-order nostalgia. Now imagine an app that would let you apply this same capability to literature. Something that would allow you to–with just a few swipes on your smartphone–take a pedestrian piece of prose and instantly transform it into something more memorable.
For example, let’s take “The Hunger Games.” Its popularity is unquestioned, but it was not particularly renowned for the complexity or beauty of its language. What if we could take a passage from this book and apply some preset filters to approximate a more classic style?

When we propelled our own Instagram this past August, we were overwhelmed by the peculiar excellence of #bookstagram. Perusers from around the globe praise their adoration for the printed word with unlimited innovativeness. I am a blog to custom assignment service and I use Instagram for relaxation.
