I began using Instagram just over a year ago and it has quickly become one of my favorite social media networks. It has proven to be a great way to meet other people around the world that have similar interests to me and it’s far more interactive than any of the other popular social media sites that I’m apart of. The only downside for me was that I had all these neat photos that I never did anything with. Of course I always had good intentions of making creative albums with my IG (Instagram) pics, but I never got around to it. So when I stumbled upon BooksTo.Me a few months ago, I got very excited because I knew it was exactly what I was looking for but didn’t know existed.
Here’s how it works…
BooksTo.Me automatically generates photo books using your Instagram pictures. If there is a photo you do not want included in your book, just simply write #noBTM on the photo in your IG account and it will be emitted from the book.
You subscribe to the service on either a monthly basis (one book per month) or a quarterly basis (one book every three months). Once you subscribe, you can cancel at anytime without any fees. There is no additional fee for shipping either! It’s very straight forward and so hands-free.
I have received books for the last three months now and I cannot tell you how much my daughter and I look forward to our delivery. We love showing off our books to family and friends that stop by, whom of most are not on Instagram and would not otherwise ever see the pictures.
The books are 8″x8″, hardcover and in full color. BooksTo.Me adds a little highlights page on the front of the book with your most “liked” photos. Shipping is super quick too. It says on the website that shipping takes 7-10 days, but we have continually received our books two business days after my month’s end. Very impressive!
This is a family-run business out of Denver, Co. Unfortunately this is only a product available for residents of the USA at this time but it is something they hope to offer internationally very soon.

How fun – what a great way to get the pictures that are usually only on your phone in a book. Great gift idea for family, too! 🙂

I have heard about these! Totally looking into it.
Yeah it was nice not to spend hours deciding which photos to add to an album. It just shows up at your home! Could not be easier 😉
great giveaway and thanks for sharing

I have recently become an Instagram addict too! Thsi is a great idea and I love that it’s so easy to put together…no hours (days) worth of deciding which photos to put where!
Oh I know! When I make photo books of vacations or events, it seriously takes SOOOO long. I loved that I don’t even have to give this book thought, it just appears! 🙂 Super awesome idea. I love it.
I absolutely love photos books, no matter who is offering to make them…LOL! What a great idea to preserve your memories!

Thank you so much for introducing me to booksto.me! This is just what I need for my Instagram account 🙂
What a wonderful idea. I got a book made from my instagram shots but I had to put it together myself. I like your service much better 🙂
