It’s been said that if you want words to stand out, you will have to turn them into images. This means that people are more likely to devote their attention to words set against a striking background than to the same words presented as plain text — even though the words come from Shakespeare or Salinger. Unfortunately, this is just the way it is in the age of Instagram. Fortunately, you can use Postepic, particularly if you want to share book quotes in the form of eye-catching images.

Post customization. You can then pick a font and a background for the quote, and add the author, the title, and other tags you may need to keep your library of book quotes organized. Once you’re happy with how your book quote image looks, you’re ready to save it to your private library or publish it to the in-app public library.
Optical character recognition. To start sharing a book quote with Postepic, snap a picture of a page from a print book or load a screenshot of a page from an e-book, and crop the image to contain only the lines you want to capture. Postepic then uses optical character recognition (OCR) to automatically convert the captured quote into editable text.
Feed exploration. In Postepic, you can also browse a feed of images of book quotes that other users have shared in the home feed, and you can discover book quotes by searching keywords or checking out tags. If you find something that you want to save, just “like” it to make it easily accessible in your favorites. And of course, you can go to your personal library to see all of the book quotes that you’ve created in Postepic, whether saved privately or shared publicly. You can even share book quotes from Postepic to other social media apps and sites, if you really want to spread the wit and wisdom of what you’ve read.
What is it about?
To start sharing a book quote with Postepic, snap a picture of a page from a print book or load a screenshot of a page from an e-book, and crop the image to contain only the lines you want to capture. (For the sake of legibility, Postepic recommends limiting a book quote to 600 characters.)
For those who...
- want a single place for collecting your favorite book quotes.
- want an Instagram-like app for sharing book quotes.
Not for those who...
- are not an avid reader.
- are an avid reader but can’t be bothered to collect book quotes.
Why we love it
Postepic is quite similar to Quotle, but unlike Quotle, which allows only plain color backgrounds, Postepic offers a selection of elegant background images — although allowing users to upload their own background images would be a major plus, too. Postepic also encourages discovery of book quotes shared by other users — although allowing users to follow others would be much appreciated as well. As it is, though, Postepic is already a worthy candidate for the title of Instagram for book quotes, that is, it’s already an outstanding app for making book quotes stand out.
