#Bookstagram is a phenomenon on Instagram, where booklovers and bibliophiles share their love of photographing beautiful books as well as teacups, typewriters and reading in said books , amongst other things.
Bookstagram is basically, as far as I can tell, descriptive of an Instagram account, that primarily posts pictures of, with or about books or ‘bookish’ things. Usually these pictures involve a cup containing a hot beverage, or just a beverage in general, as well as the following things;
- Flowers, doesn’t matter if they’re real or plastic, as long as they are pretty
- Funkopops (some sort of figurines, portraying fictional characters from books, movies, plays etc.)
- Books, of course, the more the better, sometimes
- Notes with quotes on it
- Maybe a computer or a blanket
This is obviously a generalization, that doesn’t offer credit to how inspiring this phenomenon really is.
So far, I have only just begun to understand some of the bookstagram slang and codes of conduct, but it seems like a solid, good and inspiring internet community, and I am excited to see what kind of books and literature I will be exposed to – it is a great way to find inspiration for new books to read!
