This weeks’ discussion post is a lighter topic but very well loved: Bookstagram.
Since the last two discussions have been questions, this one will be just a general share-your-ideas-accounts-and-chat type discussion.
So let’s talk about Bookstagram!
For the people who are a bit confused…What is Bookstagram?
Bookstagram is the bookish side of Instagram! It’s the place where bookworms like me post photos of books and anything else related. All in all, it’s a great place.
But…what’s the point in Bookstagram?
Well, some people might think there isn’t a point to it. I mean, why only post photos of books over and over again?
My answer to that is: Because I want to and I can. Because books are pretty and look good in photos. Because I am a HUGE bookworm and everything in my life is related to books.
I personally love the bookstagram community. I adore taking photos and sharing what I think. It’s sort of like a preview to my blog, or little snippets. I love asking questions in my captions, and I get so happy when people comment on my photos in return! And I especially love taking the time to look through and commenting on everyone else’s bookish photos – I find it so interesting!
Are there any issues with Bookstagram?
I guess there is. I mean, there are times where I hear about people stealing other people’s photos and claiming them as their own, but these cases don’t happen all that often and are always reported.
But I haven’t ever seen any hate or mean comments on bookstagram. I’m sure they exist, since they do in most places, but they must be very rare for me to have bookstagram for about a year and not see anything of the sort.
For me personally, the only issues I end up having is trying to take a decent photograph. I seriously do struggle with that.
Do you have a Bookstagram account?
As I’ve already mentioned, I do!
Here’s an insight to the sort of things I post. If you’re feeling nice enough, go check it out! There’ll be a link below, or you can click on the preview in the sidebar.

If you don’t have a Bookstagram, why not? Would you ever consider getting one?
Do you have any issues with Bookstagram – like I have issues with taking decent photos sometimes? (damn the bad lighting)
