(feat. Book Expo America)

Thoughts:

Day 2 looks at Visual Expressions & Social Media. Normally I’d combine the topics into one post—so as to not inundate you all—but I think both of these need to be separated into different posts. This post will concern Social Media. For part 1, click here to be redirected to look at Visual Expressions.
