Instagram Account Documents The Books Read By Simpsons, And They're Too Real


As America's longest-running scripted primetime TV show with 29 seasons under its belt, The Simpsons is a constant source of inspiration for memes, prophecies, and hard-hitting reality checks. Over the years, fans have been creating dedicated social media accounts to document certain aspects of their favorite characters and the life in Springfield in general.

One such example is the @SimpsonsLibrary Instagram account moderated by Guatemala City-based art director and sworn Simpsons fans, Carmen López.

The account is pretty straightforward – it shares screenshots of all the printed material that has appeared on the show, most of which is either a spoof of an actual book, like the Fahrenheit 451,000 parodying Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, or totally made up titles ranging from Tender Are My Whipped Buttocks by F. Scott Fitzgerald to Thin By Third Grade.

Speaking to It's Nice That, López revealed her reasoning to start @SimpsonsLibrary:

"As a big Simpsons fan, I was already following a lot of Instagram accounts that share recurring themes in the show and found myself collected snippets of scenes and details of the huge Simpsons universe like cars, tattoos, movie references, food.

I love them all, but it seemed very strange to me that nobody had covered the literary elements because it was one of the things that caught my attention the most. One sleepless night I started collecting some of the screenshots to pass the time."

In less than a year, her account racked up more than 10,000 followers. You can join too over here and be sure to scroll further to see some of our favorite The Simpsons books.
