What Is A Bookstagrammer?
A bookstagrammer is an instagram user who has a niche Instagram profile that is centered around books. These Instagram users post creative images of books, quotes from books, places to read books, and sometimes themselves reading books. If you’re already familiar with Instagram influencers, bookstagrammers often have thousands of followers and sponsorships or brand deals due to their large audiences.

Based out of Saudi Arabia, this highly successful bookstagrammer also has a YouTube channel! Unlike the other profiles we’ve listed, this bookstagrammer captures book and reading spots on the go! Whether he spots an awesome used book find, or whether he’s grabbing a coffee at a local coffee shop, he’ll often capture the moment—using his colorful, patterned socks to accent many of his shots.

Bright and bold is the name of the game for this bookstagrammer, who chooses to highlight the brightest possible colors her book spines have to offer.
