The title really sums up what I’ve been wondering for some time. It’s no secret that I recently dived into the bookstagram (book-Instagram for those of you who are unaware) community and I won’t lie – I’m loving it. So much that I’ve considered quitting blogging entirely and jumping ship.
I’m not leaving, of course. Sorry, you’re just going to have to deal with me for the time being. ;)
But I won’t ignore the fact that I did consider it and it led me to wonder why I didn’t drop the thought like a hot potato and instead explored every ridge and bump on that potato. For one, bookstagramming makes me incredibly happy. There’s the thrill of finding a spot with suitable lighting, arranging everything in a hundred different ways, taking at least three shots per angle, selecting the best picture, editing, and finally posting it with a fun caption. And I love every step of it. (You can click on any of the pictures below taken by me and be redirected to my Instagram account, @adeliscray!) (UPDATE: my bookstagram account is now @apageofheaven. @adeliscray is my normal account and there’ll probably still be bookish pictures posted but probably not as spectacular as my bookstagram since I’m mixing them in of pictures from my life too. You can follow one or both if you want, haha!)
