Am I a Bookstagrammer?

Over the past few years, I’ve hardly read anything. The odd book here and there and mainly reading when I go on holiday.

At the start of this year, something just clicked, and I’ve rediscovered my love of reading and I’ve been using Instagram to record my reading. As a result, my account has become very book orientated.

I’ve always followed bookstagram accounts and I’m finding more and more. I have been in two minds about starting a dedicated account for all things books.

For now, everything will stay on seeingspots_ but maybe one day I’ll move it to its own place.

I’ve always been a firm believer that reading should be enjoyable. You shouldn’t read because you think you should. Comparing yourself to others never helps (in anything in life).

Even comparing myself month on month it’s just not worth it. One month I’ll read 16 books and others I’ll read one.

At this point in time, I’ve read 60 books this year and I honestly can’t believe it, that’s probably more than I’ve read over the last three years.

So in answer to the question, no I’m not a bookstagrammer, I don’t think I’d like to be one. I like an eclectic mix but never say never. Maybe I will move things to its own space one day but for now my Instagram will be a random mix of books, days out. Random things I’ve bought or done.

I feel I will always post a high level of book-related content, but I just love too many things!

Are you a bookish account? Do you follow a lot of bookish accounts? Let me know your favourite people to follow as I love finding new people to follow.
