The next Instagram Challenge theme is CELEBRATE WOMEN. We decided to introduce this challenge with the cover photo of the beautiful “Well Read Women: A Reader’s Journal.” Moved by the female heroines throughout literary history, artist Samantha Hahn created watercolor portraits that captured the complex spirit of her favorite characters. She assembled her collection in a journal that allows readers to reflect on the admirable, flawed, and empowering qualities in each of these women, protagonists who continue to inspire the values of women today. In honor of Women’s History Month, join us in celebrating history in the making. We want to see the women who inspire you! Be sure to tag your photos and stories with #UGInstaFun to be in the running for a $50 gift card.

The smell of ink and paper excites them. They don’t consider a tote bag quite full unless there’s a paperback or an e-reader inside. To them, life is a series of stories. Some call them the literati, bibliophiles, or even book worms. But, they’re not so concerned about those titles, because they’d rather be browsing the shelves for titles from their favorite authors. They are book lovers, and here are some gifts that are sure to read well with them this holiday season.
